Businesses on Bay

It’s common knowledge that running any business is hard work. Somehow, there are actually business owners who contribute to their communities on top of providing important goods and/or services through their companies. That’s hard work on top of hard work!

Holiday Gifts Being Wrapped

There are less than 20 shopping days to go before Christmas. If you’re anything like me, you still have a bunch of names on your list to buy for this year. Sure, you can grab a gift card or send something on Amazon, but your giftees and your community would appreciate it if you finished your shopping locally. Staten Island is jam-packed with small businesses that offer fantastic products that your loved ones will enjoy!

This year, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce Foundation has been providing much needed funds targeted at storefront and business restoration via the Stapleton Storefront Enhancement Grant Program.
