The gov. wants you to visit the corner store tomorrow

Perhaps trying to show they are on the job on the day after Thanksgiving, the governor’s office just sent out a press release promoting something called Small Business Saturday, a campaign to get shoppers to eschew the malls tomorrow and to patronize shops on Main Street.

Nothing wrong with that, but we wonder if the governor is going to lead the way by doing a bit of Christmas shopping on Main Street in Mendham.

    Back in the day, there was a store in my home towns Main street called Cervanies. It was a popular Christmas shopping location.

    They should be doing good business in Mendham considering that the megamillionaires who live there will be paying less taxes on their income thanks to their good neighbor and benefactor.
