Our Community > Small Business Spotlight

A Message from the Town

North Hempstead’s “Small Business Spotlight” initiative is designed to profile our local businesses and promote the goods and services they provide on the Town’s website and social channels. Our small shops, restaurants, and professional services connect us, and they are critical to maintaining our sense of community. As part of the Town’s “Lift up Local” campaign, we aim to support our businesses during these unprecedented times and remind our residents to shop local in our downtowns. Our business community leads the way to create a positive shopping experience without traveling far from home or having to use other online shopping sites to purchase products and services. 

We thank our residents and our Chambers of Commerce and Business Improvement Districts for their support as we work collaboratively to assist our small and local businesses.

North Hempstead is proud to showcase these businesses in our community! To have your business featured, click here and complete the application form.
