For Women’s History Month, we’re partnering with over 30 neighborhood organizations from across NYC on the #SmallBusinessWonderWomen campaign. We’re sharing the wonderful women behind the businesses that make NoHo a special place. Every woman was asked to share what makes them a small business wonder woman and why they chose to make NoHo their home.

What makes me a #SmallBusinessWonderWomen is I’m the glue of the community, I was open all during COVID, and love getting to know my customers. A sentence or two can totally change somebody’s day, and I’ve formed so many beautiful relationships since the pandemic started, and I love that. Some of my customers stop by just to check-in on me and get to know me and it’s amazing. A customer, I’ve known for years, just stopped by and told me she wanted to brighten my day so she brought me an orchid for the store. You can’t find a community like this just anywhere.”
