Recently Mayor Dawn Zimmer was approached by myself and other local retailers asking for the towns help in conducting a weekend shopping event entitled "Shop Hoboken". The event was to inform local residents to shop locally, a reminder that Hoboken retail businesses depend on it's residents patronage. After contacting the mayor's office for assistance, I was informed the mayor would take the time to meet with us and determine if the town would be able to assist in the event. After an initial meeting with several business owners, the mayor was aboard full throttle and the town stood behind us to make the event a major success. Many local store owners reported an increase in foot traffic and sales. The town assisted us in so many strategic ways that us as business owners would not have been able to ascertain. I, on behalf of many local business owners want to thank Mayor Dawn Zimmer and her colleagues Juan Melli and Ian Sacs for their kindness and support in making "Shop Hoboken" a success. We look forward to working with the mayor and her colleagues in the near future with regards to other events. It's true, together we can make a difference!
