The Merrick Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, volunteer run organization that supports local businesses and community improvement. We welcome members who are business owners or who reside in the Merrick and North Merrick districts.
The new LED sign by the Merrick train station is welcomed and important. "Shopping locally is a responsibility for every resident that cares about our town. " Unfortunately the litter, weeds and unkempt condition of Merrick Ave. from Sunrise Highway to Smith Street forces me to shop elsewhere. I've lived in Merrick since 1955 and was never more ashamed of our downtown. If these conditions aren't rectified small businesses and shoppers are going elsewhere and we'll be left with empty storefronts and a negative image of Merrick. We must get the Town of Hempstead to clean the streets, pick up garbage, weed and maintain the town like they're supposed to do. The business owners must realize if shoppers have to step over garbage on Merrick Avenue to enter their stores residents are going elsewhere, they have to do their part. Instead of walking past the filth get a broom and sweep in front of your businesses. Unfortunately Its going to take more than the LED sign to attract and keep business in Merrick.
The Merrick MapToon will be delivered over the next few days. Support your local business community! 🥰
