Clarkstown Officials Encourage Residents to Shop Downtowns

Revitalized downtowns offer shops, restaurants and chance to meet up with friends


Supervisor Alex Gromack and Councilwoman Stephanie Hausner announce the Town of Clarkstown has joined others in naming Saturday, November 24, 2012 as ‘Small Business Saturday’, a day where everyone comes together to support small businesses and preserve neighborhood character.  Some local retailers in Clarkstown will have promotions to coincide with “Small Business Saturday."

“Revitalizing our downtown shopping areas has had a significant and beneficial impact on our Town,” said Gromack.  “Our residents love the new look and the vitality that these projects have brought to their hamlets. In addition to serving as vibrant small business centers, with neighborhood shops owned and operated by local merchants, the downtown centers are a meeting place for residents who understand the importance of supporting our local small business owners and operators. It has been a positive investment for shop keepers and residents.”

Hausner said now is a great opportunity to get out and about the downtown areas and the importance of residents keeping their dollars in town by utilizing the 'downtowns' should not be underestimated.  

“While it is difficult for the small business owner to compete with the larger box stores, there is no replacing that 'neighborly' touch and friendly service you get when you shop locally and no denying that a dollar spent here in Clarkstown will do far more for our communities than a dollar spent someplace else,” said Hausner.

The downtowns help to bring the community together.

“So many of our local businesses were hit hard during Hurricane Sandy and many others opened their doors to neighbors, friends and customers during their time of need,” said Hausner.  “That type of service shows how important our local businesses are to our community.”

Hausner added, “As work continues on the second phase of New City revitalization and we begin to look at plans for West Nyack we recognize these local businesses not just on ‘Small Business Saturday’, but all year.”
