The East Meadow Chamber of Commerce will hold ribbon cutting ceremonies at two new businesses Tuesday.
A Bagel & A Shmeer made its debut at 532 East Meadow Avenue Oct. 11. A veteran in the food business, owner Kariene Aghabekian offers more than a dozen homemade "shmeers."
Bagels are made off-site but it's Aghabekian's recipe all the way, a recipe she's been perfecting for years making bagels at home for her two daughters. Cold cuts, paninis, breakfast sandwiches, a portions control menu, along with a Kids Kombo menu are also offered.
Premier Care of East Meadow began welcoming patients to its 1919 Hempstead Turnpike location in late September. The walk-in urgent care center treats both adults and children. The facility is one of 10 now open on Long Island.
Doctors are all board-certified in emergency medicine, according to Premier Care's website. X-rays, a lab for "rapid testing" of illnesses like strep throat and the flu and equipment to treat wounds needing stitches are all on-site. The center can also administer antibiotics and IV fluids.
The ribbon cuttings will take place at 11:30 a.m. at A Bagel & A Shmeer and at noon at Premier Care of East Meadow.
