The store has on display a board of photos of the bakery and staff throughout the 30 years. Another display board shows the ads that were run in the Market Place paper 30 years ago when the store first opened in 1991.
Also celebrating its 30 year anniverary in business is Market Place Publications. Owner Jeanette Frisina has a weekly advertising newspaper delivered direct to the homes and also a digital version serving New Hyde Park and surrounding neighborhoods.
Jeanette designed Joe from Gourmet Bake Shops’ grand opening ads 30 years ago and the two are still doing business with each other today.
These are the kind of business relationships the chamber promotes as well as the importance of shopping local.
