With one week until the school year begins, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joined with Julie Marchesella, President of the Nassau Council of Chambers of Commerce and Mike Setzer, CEO of NICE Bus, on Wednesday, August 31st at Stride Rite in Port Washington, to kick off a “Back to School” shop local campaign. A NICE Bus was on display to highlight the “Shop Local” posters that have been placed inside NICE vehicles.

“I encourage all residents to support their hometown businesses, not only as they go back to school shopping, but year-round, as local businesses are the heartbeat of Nassau County’s economy and make our communities stronger and better places to live, work and raise a family,” said County Executive Mangano.

The Nassau County Industrial Development Agency, in partnership with the Nassau Council of Chambers of Commerce, launched a significant new marketing campaign aimed at encouraging residents to shop at local Nassau County merchants. Utilizing television, print, radio and social media the ads featured Nassau business owners. The campaign is part of the Nassau County IDA’s effort to assist small businesses as they are the lifeblood of our communities.

“Shop Nassau County” benefits include:
• Money spent here stays here (keeping local dollars in the economy)
• Jobs and wages (supporting local businesses provides support for the jobs they offer)
• Stronger tax base
• Nassau business owners invest in our community
• Convenience & Green-Friendly (proximity reduces gas consumption)

Small businesses play a critical role in our economy as they account for 98% of all businesses in New York State and employ more than 40% of the State's private sector workforce. The nation’s 28 million small businesses create nearly two out of three jobs nationwide and have generated over 65% of the net new jobs since 1995.

“With Nassau employers contributing to the economic base and connectivity of our local communities, we must help raise awareness about the role they play and promote a business-friendly Nassau that attracts suppliers and distributors in similar industries,” said County Executive Mangano.

The Nassau Council of Chambers of Commerce is an umbrella organization acting as a spokesperson for over 40 Chambers of Commerce in Nassau County, New York. Long Island is home to more than 90,000 businesses grossing more than $100 billion a year. The vast majority of these businesses employ 50 people or less.
