Town of North Hempstead Gears Up for Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28
Town Officials Encourage Residents to Shop Locally for the Holidays
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board, along with the North Hempstead Business & Tourism Corporation (BTDC), are urging residents to support Small Business Saturday on November 28, as part of a national effort to drive consumers to shop at local independently owned businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
For the second straight year, the Town is a proud sponsor of Small Business Saturday, a joint partnership between Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) and the Small Business Saturday Coalition.
“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.”
“’Buy Local’ is great to say, but does it really mean anything? The answer is YES - It means everything,” BTDC Executive Director Kim Kaiman stated. “Businesses play an important role within North Hempstead and supporting them can make or break a business’s chances of survival here in our town. Remember to not only support your local businesses on Small Business Saturday, but any time you think of making a purchase.”
In 2014, 456 city and town officials joined together to support Small Business Saturday. The Town of North Hempstead looks forward to joining in this effort once again. An estimated $14.3 billion was spent nationwide at small businesses on 2014’s Small Business Saturday.
