The Village of Great Neck Plaza and the Great Neck Plaza Business Improvement District (BID) will host the annual Salute to New Merchants event on August 18 (rain date August 25) to welcome all new merchants and shop owners to the Plaza. Stores opening under new management will also be honored. The event will take place from 7:00pm to 8:00pm in the Jonathan Ielpi Firefighters Memorial Park (Grace Ave. Park) followed by a performance from singer Ricky Pen as part of the Great Neck Plaza Summer Concert Series.
“The Salute to New Merchants event is always a great opportunity to bring the community together and showcase the diverse variety of restaurants and shops that we have in our village,” said Jean Celender, Mayor of Great Neck Plaza. “It is to honor to welcome these new merchants to the community.”
As part of this celebration, the Great Neck Plaza BID will distribute a free coupon book at the Salute to New Merchants ceremony. The coupon books will be filled with special promotion offers from merchants – old and new – in Great Neck Plaza. The book will also be available online for anyone unable to attend the event.
A partial listing of new merchants who are going to be honored include Caffe Bene, Daviki Jewelry, La Rotonda, Muse Paintbar, Rimon, Serene Nails, Village Asian Fusion and many more.
