The Office of NYS Assemblyman Karim Camara & Nostrand Ave. Merchants Association Holiday Business Breakfast

On behalf of Nostrand Avenue Merchants Association, I would like to invite you join our merchant community at a Holiday Business Breakfast. This event is scheduled to take place on Thursday December 11th 2014, 8.00-9.30am at “MY PLACE”, 1150 Nostrand Avenue (corner of Rutland Road) Brooklyn, NY.

The occasion will kick off the major shopping weekend for Shop Local CB9, an initiative of Community Board 9 and the area’s Merchant Associations.
Your presence at this breakfast meeting would undoubtedly add credence to our Shop Local theme as we seek to revitalize neighborhood businesses.
