The Chamber of Commerce of the Tonawandas held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Sign Gypsies WNY on Tuesday. Director of Marketing and Membership Sarah Nelson welcomed in the newest member.
Sign Gypsies WNY was launched May 1 with one goal in mind: To make a positive impact in the community by spreading joy and celebrating big.
A press release said, “We are the local affiliate of the nation’s largest yard greeting company and are committed to providing exemplary customer service while delivering a unique and fun sign rental to celebrate all life’s events!”
Sign Gypsies WNY is co-owned by Nicole Landen and Ron Harkins, both North Tonawanda natives, and lifelong friends.
They noted, “Grounded in the strong desire to build a family business that our children could participate in while learning valuable business skills, and most importantly, see the absolute joy their hard work brings to our community, the decision to join the Sign Gypsies family was an easy one. Together, along with the amazing support of our families, we have already placed over 1,000 signs all over Western New York!
“The community reception to our new business has been unlike anything we dared to imagine! Everyone has been so supportive and we are building our inventory as fast as we can. We have recently moved out of my garage and into a warehouse to accommodate the growth, which has more than quadrupled since we’ve opened. We are dedicated to giving back to our community and enjoy being able to partner with local organizations to provide fundraising opportunities, which is especially critical during these times.
“Just as Sign Gypsies has blessed our family in so many ways, we strive to share that same joy with as many families as we can. Seeing the reaction of a greeting recipient who notices their surprise for the first time is proof positive that we are exactly where we need to be at this very moment. Our contactless, online ordering offers families from all over the country the ability to send some cheer to their loved ones from across the miles with the confidence that they will be treated to a unique yard greeting that is designed with love.”
Sign Gypsies WNY proudly offers a discount to fellow veterans and first responders.
