Lets talk shop local,why shop local?
Shopping local is a dedication to your community businesses,shopping local keeps our local businesses open and operating! Your support to them helps them to trive! Sure you can travel to the big box stores but are they giving back to your community? Good question, right! But the answer is NO, isn't it? It's great to see a local business name on the little league teams T-shirts during the summer. You bet! Local businesses are always willing to help out when they can with a donation for an event or a benefit. Thank you to all those businesses who help our community!
This weeks Special ShoutOut goes out to our fine Pizzerias in downtown Gouverneur, Enjoy a great slice of Pizza any day of the week! Dashnaws Pizzeria located at 174 East Main St. and New York Pizzeria located at 83 East Main St.
Until Next week...Shop Local!

Last week we introduced to you to who the Gouverneur Chamber is, this week let's find out what the chamber does for our community.
The Chamber holds an annual Chamber banquet in May honoring a Business Member by asking the community for nominations. This year, we highlighted New York Pizzeria. We also, through a random drawing, choose our featured 'Business of the Month' for the entire coming year.
In June we host the Flag Day Parade; a big event that brings lots of people to Gouverneur, and always a fun filled day!
Throughout the summer, farmers market is held on Thursdays 9am to 2 pm!
August brings us the Community Garage Sales and in September is Pumpkin Fest. Chamber Directors help the Fair Association with the selling of the Pumpkin Drop tickets and with the organization of the event.
Santa comes to Gouverneur in December at our Christmas Parade in the village park. Kids are excited to see Santa, snack on treats of cookies and hot chocolate and enjoy the horse drawn sleigh rides.
New this year, the chamber will be hosting an Informative Small Business Class, so if you are thinking about starting a new business, this is a great place to start. The Small Business Administration in Canton will teach the 2 hour class in October, more info to come.
Each week we will give a Special Business Shout out to our wonderful businesses right here in downtown Gouverneur!
This week our Special Business Shout Out goes to our downtown Brown's Jewelry store located at 43 East Main Street. Looking for a special gift, shop Brown's!
