Our annual “Back to School Sales Days” on Woodhaven’s Jamaica Avenue have begun. Yes, bargains, bargains, bargains on your award-winning Woodhaven Business Improvement District’s Jamaica Avenue from Dexter Court to 100th Street. Our Everything Avenue. Because you can find everything you need right here on Woodhaven’s Jamaica Avenue, where we’re “Taking Care of Bidness.”
Our Woodhaven Business Improvement District has great purchases available with great savings, especially on Saturday, August 25, when you WBID will sponsor “Back to School” Sales Days with the great musical group Plastic Soul, face painters and free giveaways, including American flags, all along our Jamaica Avenue.

So this Saturday, August 25, from 1 p.m. on, shop while you enjoy the music, the clowns, and free face painting. So, buy, buy, buy and then relax by eating out or ordering in at the many restaurants with good food, great sales, and fun events from your Woodhaven Business Improvement District.
