The Chamber Chatter: Eight Good Reasons to Buy Bronxville this Holiday Season PDF Print Email

alt


By Susan Miele, Executive Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce


Dec. 14, 2016:  Why should you buy Bronxville this holiday season? Let me count the reasons: 

#1: Economic Ripple Effect – Supporting Bronxville businesses helps keep municipal services strong and property taxes down.  Bronxville shoppers feed Bronxville meters; Bronxville businesses pay Bronxville taxes; Bronxville employees buy food, goods, and services in Bronxville; Bronxville businesses employ local services (e.g., accountants, insurance brokers, computer consultants, attorneys, graphic designers, window designers, and more); a vibrant business district results in higher property values.

#2: Village Character – The unique landscape of the Bronxville business community is a beloved asset that is well worth preserving. Bronxville is differentiated from surrounding communities by having a high concentration of locally owned, independent businesses, the owners of which take as much pride in Bronxville as our residents do. Many of our merchants have been in Bronxville for 20, 30, 40 years or more and are true stalwarts of the community.

#3: Our Businesses Give Back – Bronxville businesses support your fundraisers, donate goods and gift certificates, and can be relied upon time and time again.

#4: Customer Service – Nowhere can you get the same personal attention than you do here in town. Store owners take great pride in helping you identify the perfect item, special-order what you want, grant discounts because you’re a valued customer, adjust their hours to accommodate your schedule, have your gifts wrapped and ready for pickup, deliver locally, and more. In this 1-square-mile village, our merchants go the extra mile.

#5: Distinct Merchandise – Visit the business district of almost any neighboring community and notice how alike they are. You can escape the retail sameness by supporting independently owned merchants. They make different buying decisions than the giant chains.

#6: People – When you support local, independent businesses, you support local, independent people. Get to know your local merchant and you’ll get to know a neighbor—often a single proprietor or a family-owned business. Support a local business and you’ll help a Westchester-based family send their kids to college, pay off their mortgage, and spend their own money locally.

#7: Feel It…See It…Smell It…. There's no substitute for the five senses when choosing items for purchase. How many times did you mail-order an item only to find:  It doesn’t fit; isn’t flattering; the dimensions aren’t what they seemed; doesn’t match; or the material is flimsy. When you shop right here in Bronxville, you get to handle the item in question and know exactly what you’re getting, reducing the need for returns. But if you do need to return something, there’s no need for bubble wrap and waiting on line at the post office—just pop into town and go straight to the source.

#8: Instant Gratification – Never mind next-day shipping. Shop in Bronxville and have it in your hands the same day. If you must buy online, choose a Bronxville business that offers online retail.

New Parking Pay Stations in the Garden Avenue Lot

Pay station kiosks that enable patrons to simply use their parking space number to purchase time are now available in the Garden Avenue lot. The three kiosks are conveniently located and accept coins, dollar bills, $5 bills and MasterCard and Visa. Patrons can also continue to use the pay-by-phone app PANGO.
