Like many downtowns, Port Jefferson has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

To help spotlight businesses that are open, the Village of Port Jefferson and the Port Jefferson Business Improvement District teamed up for a promotional campaign.

This includes the launch of a new online web series called “Zooming with the Mayor,” where Port Jefferson Mayor Margot Garant conducts “personable, easy-going” interviews with local merchants, small businesses and restaurants by using Zoom. She’s interviewed over two dozen local purveyors so far. See the show by clicking here.

The village also released a 30-second commercial with the message of supporting your favorite businesses in town. Watch it below.

To see all the local restaurants and merchants running in town, make sure to visit portjeff.com/opentoday.
