Monday, 08 December 2014 10:36

With Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday behind us, representatives of the Bergenfield Special Improvement District (BSID) are reminding consumers of the importance of shopping and dining locally this holiday season.

"During the holiday season, and all-year round, we encourage people to shop and dine in Bergenfield, supporting the many locally and family-owned and operated stores, restaurants and service providers that are proud to be a part of our community," stated Rob Russo of Russo Real Estate, who serves as Chair of the BSID’s board of directors.

One great reason to shop and dine locally is the convenience factor including avoiding crowds, parking problems and traffic tie ups that are often part of the experience at shopping malls and outlet centers. Another is the many local businesses that can help make your life easier and shopping a snap during this busy time of year.

Take heart. While the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping like the season’s first snow, you will find seasonally savvy products, services and dining options in Bergenfield’s Business District.
