Avoid the Day Awarded


Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato presented owners Jianna and Jason Heuer of Avoid the Day Bookstore with her April 2021 Small Business of the Month citation on Independent Bookstore Day, Saturday, April 24. The award ceremony took place as a surprise addition to Avoid The Day’s Independent Bookstore Day programming, which included book readings from local authors throughout the day. The Assemblywoman read a chapter from Rockaway resident Dan Brown’s book, “The Sometimes Why: Short Stories, Monologues, and Words to That Effect,” along with four other local readers.

 “Avoid the Day Bookstore exemplifies what a true community partner and civic minded small business can mean to a community,” Pheffer Amato said. “Through their hard work and dedication to their business - they have firmly ensconced themselves as an important part of the community and are an invaluable addition to the culture and arts space in Rockaway.”

“We want to thank Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato for presenting us with the April 2021 Small Business of the Month Award,” Jianna and Jason Heuer, owners of Avoid the Day Bookstore said.
