Mayor Richard Kavesh today urged residents of Nyack to participate in an upcoming promotional event on Saturday, September 25th called “$25 on the 25th” to support local businesses across New York State during this stubborn economic downturn. The “$25 on the 25th” campaign is being jointly sponsored by The New York State Conference of Mayors, the New York Press Association, and the New York State Economic Development Council .
The “$25 on the 25th” campaign will give New Yorkers a concrete way to support struggling local merchants. It will encourage New Yorkers to shop locally this September 25th, spending at least $25 at a local store or stores. If successful, the “$25 on the 25th” campaign will be repeated.
“Mark your calendars for September 25th,” said Mayor Kavesh. “This will be a day to support and celebrate local businesses that give Nyack so much of its charm and warmth. I am proud to join mayors across New York in helping make “$25 on the 25th” a tremendous success.”
The New York Press Association (NYPA) has created print advertisements for the campaign, which will run in community newspapers around the state. It also has designed banners and logos for store windows to encourage as many local businesses as possible to create special shopping incentives for the day.
