“When you buy local you support local families, promote employment and add to our tax base,” said Mayor Francis X. Murray. “Buying locally sustains the unique character and quality of life that exists in Rockville Centre.”

“We have a great variety of shops to meet every holiday shopping list,” Murray said.
