Keep Our Place Alive

This petition had 92 supporters

The strip mall at 1355 Montauk Hwy. in Mastic has been sold and is due to be replaced with a Dairy Queen. This location contains numerous small businesses, such as the Mastic Sports Deli and Our Place Cafe. 

Our Place Cafe is a favorite among local residents to be among good company and enjoy a cocktail. To replace this with a massive franchise like Dairy Queen would be a tragedy. 

Small businesses are the backbone of any town. Large corporations are taking over and replacing family-run establishments. This cannot be allowed to continue. To demolish this location puts many hard working people out of businesses that they have worked very hard to make a part of the local community. To see them forced out would be a tragedy. 

Sign to support these small business owners and attempt to stop yet another corporate fast-food franchise from taking hold. Honestly, we don't need another one, and it just isn't right to force these people out. They are not voluntarily leaving. The building was sold from under them.
