Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce encourages shopping local for Father’s Day


With Father’s Day around the corner, Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce President Lisa Cohn is encouraging city residents to shop local. 

“In light of the fact that stores are opening, venture out,” Cohn said. “Put a mask on, go out and get some fresh air and support our local businesses — they’re struggling to come out and they need all of us to support them.” 

Cohn added that residents should consider their local stores before online shopping. And with the deadline to grab a gift just a couple days away, patronizing a local business may be ideal to grab a gift on time.
