To the Editor:
The holidays are here, and Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday have passed -- and much shopping is left to do.
Please take the time to seek opportunities to patronize our local small businesses. This is the time of year that makes or breaks a local small business.
Local small businesses contribute significantly more than "big box," national and regional chains do to our community. The also support all aspects of our community, from sports clubs, Scouts, Lions, Rotary, Elks, American Legion, VFW, fire departments and police, as well as many of our not-for-profits.
Most all your needs can be filled by a local small business in our community. Please shop our town's five business hamlets -- Crompond, Jefferson Valley, Mohegan Lake, Shrub Oak and Yorktown Heights -- this holiday season and the year-round.
Bob Giordano, founder and president, Yorktown Small Business Association
