As Rockaway continues to rebuild and recover from Superstorm Sandy it is more important than ever to support our local businesses. Local business is the backbone of our community and a strong business base lifts the tide for everyone. Many locals work at these businesses and most businesses are locally owned. We have the best hardware store, liquor stores, bagel stores, newspaper shops, etc. Many professionals that have been here for many years and have elected to stay after the devastation of Sandy should also be supported. They are the ones that will help make the community stronger than before! So when you travel across a bridge save some gas instead and help the ones who have always been there for, you for years, the locally owned businesses.
