TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney will continue his New Jersey “Small Business Listening Tour” tomorrow with a 1 p.m. stop in Perth Amboy to visit Ali’s Liquor Warehouse, which is located at 642 State Street.
The Senate President began the tour last month and to date has visited eight small businesses across New Jersey, with stops in Wall, Atlantic City, Paramus, Hamilton, Robbinsville, the City of Burlington, and Ewing. As part of the tour, the Senate President will hear from local business owners, workers and constituents about what they feel can help best get New Jersey’s economy, currently one of the worst performing in the nation, moving again. Additional stops are planned in the days ahead.
In addition to hearing the concerns of small business owners, Sweeney (D-Gloucester) will use the tour as a way to promote and highlight the ‘Jersey Shore Is Open for Business’ campaign, an initiative to help New Jersey residents find which stores and businesses are open in the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. The project is being done in conjunction with the New Jersey Restaurant and New Jersey Retail Merchants Associations, as well as the Jersey Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Businesses currently open in the state’s shore region can be seen by going to www.visitthejerseyshore.com. Business owners looking to add their name to the site should contact the Jersey Shore Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-732-244-9283.
