Shop Local! Covac Vacuum has been in Glen Cove for over 50 years!

We all know how fun it is to shop locally, but there’s more to it:

  1. Service – The number one reason to shop local. We have Bill and Mike, the master repair technicians!
  2. Protect Local Character and Prosperity – By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain diversity and distinctive flavor.
  3. Community Well-Being – Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes.
  4. Local Decision Making – Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.
  5. Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy – Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.
  6. Entrepreneurship – Entrepreneurship fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.
  7. Environmental Sustainability – Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.
  8. Competition – A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.
