This Holiday Season…Think and Shop Local!

Before you shop online, visit the shops in your town. They are eager to help you. They know their products and they know their community.

Shop Local – It keeps business on Long Island. Local stores are more likely to buy from other local businesses. Large corporate chains and box stores do not.


Shop Local – It creates local jobs. Most employees of small businesses also live and shop locally.,


Shop Local – It is investing in your community. Local businesses are owned by people who live in your community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in your community’s future.

Shop Local – It supports community groups. Non-profit organizations receive much more support from small business owners than they do from large corporate businesses.

 Whether you are shopping for the holidays, dining out, or buying a latte, support the small businesses in your town!

And when you are ready to list your home for sale, or purchase a home in the North Shore communities of Port Jefferson, Stony Brook, Mt. Sinai, and neighboring towns,
