The Southeast Queens Chamber of Commerce and its partners are hosting an inaugural Black Business Expo on Sept. 17 at the Harvest Room at 90-40 160 St. in Jamaica from 5 to 8 p.m.
“Our small businesses have been struggling and need to come out and get some exposure! Jamaica Avenue has been rising as one of the best cultural epicenter hubs in all of New York City,” said the Rev. Roxanne Simone Lord Marcelle, the founder of the Southeast Queens Chamber, in an email. “Jamaica offers a very unique shopping experience for shoppers looking for both value and ‘pizzazz.’”
