I wanted to write this week to thank Deputy Mayor Pat Christiansen and all the volunteers of the Beautification Committee who came out the past two Saturdays and worked to enhance our Village with all the flowers and hanging baskets. It looks great and will only get better as things grow and fill in.
I also want to thank the new businesses that opened recently on Main Street. Biacci is a women’s apparel store that is located next to Chase Bank across the street from the fire house. Cascarino’s Brick Oven Pizzeria & Ristorante, located in the store formerly occupied by Two Brother’s Pizza, did extensive renovations and just opened to rave reviews. What an incredible job they did on their building!
Thank you to the ARB (Architectural Review Board) for working with the owners to enhance the look of our downtown. Please help me welcome these new neighbors to the village. So many people have reminisced about not having a clothing store on Main Street. Well here is your chance to help this business and keep Main Street active.
Being in business for over 30 years has taught me to listen to my customers. They are the people who have brought me success. If you leave a store without making a purchase, please take a minute to tell the staff what you were looking for. The store owners are anxious to please. Many of the new items I carry are a result of a customer inquiry or request. With our economy still hurting, I hope you will patronize our downtown and help our local business people get past these very challenging times.
I am looking forward to the upcoming summer. Brad DeMilo and the Village Pops will be performing beginning the last week in June and we have a wonderful selection of movies starting in July all on our Village Green.
Come to Main Street – patronize our shops and restaurants and enjoy the entertainment on the Green. Hope to see you there!
