Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Royal Extensions NY
You could spend years growing out your hair to Rapunzel lengths, or you could make an appointment at Royal Extensions NY and have your new hairstyle in a couple of hours. The experts at the beauty hot spot painstakingly weave extensions made from 100% human hair to add length and volume to existing hair. Instead of using glue, braiding, and heat, the extensions from brands including Micro Strands and Micro Weft use a cold system that links to existing hairs or adheres seamlessly to the hairline for a natural look. For an even better look, the staff also specializes in eyelash extensions that let clients forgo wearing mascara or walking around holding magnifying glasses up to their eyes.
