The aftermath of super storm Sandy illustrated many things, one of which is how the local business community not only rebounded, but rebounded and helped others in time of need.
One of the biggest donation and relief efforts was the brainchild of a Sayville storeowner with tremendous support from the Greater Sayville Chamber of Commerce members.
The same is true of West Sayville, Bayport and Blue Point as emergency organizations, residents and local groups rallied to get needed supplies to residents and helped displaced residents find warm homes and a way back to normalcy.
So what better way to thank all the storeowners and local residents who work locally than to support them on Small Business Saturday?
Last year, over one hundred million people came together to Shop Small in
their communities on Small Business Saturday.
