Local Businesses: Link to County Survey To Assess Needs: Closes April 10 PDF Print Email

By Dean Bender, Thompson and Bender

Apr. 8, 2020:  Westchester County Executive George Latimer has announced that the County is undertaking a survey of the County’s business community to assess their needs during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to develop strategies to speed recovery and shape emergency relief programs and support.

“The Westchester business community is undergoing unprecedented economic pressures and needs help on many levels. This survey will guide the County in providing the assistance and services that businesses will need to continue during this terrible pandemic,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

So far, the survey was sent out to the 5,000-person Economic Development Office email list as well as to all the chambers. The survey has also been sent out by the Business Council of Westchester. Today Media and the Westchester Business Journal both sent it out and posted it on their websites. 

The survey, which went out last week, closes April 10.

Preliminary results show

  • Almost 76% report that they will lose over 50% of their income a result of COVID. However, 57% have NOT let anyone go as of the date of the survey.
  • Businesses have had to shut down, deal with illness of owners and/or employees; they cannot operate their business at home; they are not able to obey social distancing on site and are dealing with loss of customer/ client demand.
  • 70% need help addressing or changing business model or marketing to help keep customers/clients. They are concerned with immediate situation with regards to cash flow, rent, paying employees and trying to figure out if and how to continue after.
  • 85% need financial assistance – the majority are applying for SBA loans but need help with the application process.

“The survey was designed to start a conversation and hear directly from the business owners. The more we know, the more ways we can focus our attention on what businesses need.  We have a long road ahead and it is difficult to predict and prepare for all the curves and bumps along the way. But this survey is the beginning of trying to navigate that road as effectively, efficiently and compassionately as we can, together,” said Shari Rosen Ascher, Advocacy & Community Liaison Office of the Westchester County Executive.

Bronxville Natural Has a New Owner: Offers Curbside Pickup & Delivery PDF Print Email

By Catherine Biddle
Mar. 25, 2020:  Bronxville Natural Market in downtown Bronxville has new owners. To get a sense for what they have, you can take a look at their website and Facebook page.. 

They also offer curbside pickup and delivery. Simply call (914) 779-3552, place your order and they'll have it ready for you or deliver. Best of all, delivery is free for orders over $20 and within 2 miles. 

On February 1st, Wangchu Lama and his wife Samden took over as the new owners of Bronxville Natural Market. Wangchu grew up in Nepal, and his family ran a small home stay in Helambu Village in eastern Nepal. They later moved to Kathmandu. 

Growing up, Wangchu was fascinated by American hikers and watching American movies. Before he emigrated to America when he was 23, he had not seen a building more than four stories high. 
Samden comes from a family of mountain guides. Her grandfather was one of the early guides, and tragically, her father died in an avalanche when she was young. 
Wangchu worked for 15 years at the Food for Health store at 93rd and 2nd Ave in NYC and worked his way up from cashier to assistant manager. It was there that he met Samden.
He then became the manager of Green Organic Market in Hartsdale for two years until the opportunity to purchase Bronxville Natural Market arose.
“It is my life’s dream to put all I have learned to help people live healthier lives by eating and using organic products.” 
Wangchu and Samden have two children (ages 12 & 5) and live in Dobbs Ferry. 
Why you should consider shopping at Bronxville Natural

-Full product line of 100% organic produce
-vacuum packed meats, organic foods, vitamins, and supplements 
-Lower pricing than Whole Foods, Mrs. Greens or CVS 
-Free delivery within 2 miles with $20 order or 3 miles with $50 order 
-Telephone orders gladly taken
-Shop local and support a healthy dynamic village

Bronxville Natural is located at 86 Pondfield Rd in Bronxville.

They offer curbside pickup and delivery of shopping orders.
