Nyack businesses are gearing up for the holiday season, kicking off on the weekend following Thanksgiving Day with special offers, discounts, and one-of-a kind gifts and goods.
Despite the village’s many advantages, it’s no secret that Nyack businesses, like many independently owned enterprises nationwide, suffered severe hardships during the pandemic. Many were forced to shut down. But the Nyack community has proven its resilience despite nearly insurmountable odds.
As economic data show, there’s nothing small about small businesses. Independently owned retail shops, restaurants and service establishments make big contributions to their communities and local economies, providing jobs, paying taxes, offering local products, working with local vendors and supporting civic programs and institutions.
It’s no surprise then, that small businesses create two-thirds of new jobs in the U.S. and deliver well over 40% of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP), according to a 2019 report issued by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA also reports that, unlike large corporations, small businesses more accurately reflect the diversity of the U.S. population: 36% of small businesses are owned by women, nearly 15% are owned by people of color (Black, Latinx and Asian) and 9% are owned by veterans.
