Town Partners with Chambers of Commerce to Promote Shopping Locally
Sponsored by the Town of North Hempstead, the Manhasset Park District, the Manhasset Chamber, and Manhasset Lakeville Fire & Water District
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Board members have been working in partnership with local Chambers of Commerce to encourage shopping locally, not only during the holiday season, but all year long. The Town has created “Shop Local” signs for eight Chambers of Commerce.
The Supervisor and Board Members are also urging residents to support Small Business Saturday on November 30, as part of a national effort to drive consumers to shop at local independently owned businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
For the fifth straight year, the Town is a proud sponsor of Small Business Saturday.
“Downtowns are the lifeblood of our local economy, and it is our responsibility to help them flourish,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We must continue to work to grow our downtowns because when our downtown corridors succeed, so do our towns and villages. I urge everyone to support Small Business Saturday.”
The Town Board also recently approved to suspend parking meter regulations from December 9, 2019 through and including January 1, 2020 on Port Washington Boulevard, Main Street, Irma Avenue, South Maryland Avenue and Carlton Avenue. The parking meters will be covered with red bags to encourage holiday shopping in town.
Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Clerk Wayne Wink show the Town-created signs to encourage people to shop local. The Town is partnering with eight local Chambers of Commerce.
