Long Island City entrepreneurs now have a place to go for all of the start-up needs.
City Mailroom, located at 44-70 21 St., opened in the fall of last year. The fifth business of owner Kishore Hemrajani, City Mailroom offers more than just mailboxes and shipping services. The story also functions as a notary public and digital printing center that offers large scale printing perfect or architects and engineers.
“It’s filling a niche and that niche is to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and start ups get off the ground,” said owner Kishore Hemrajani.
City Mailroom’s Long Island City branch is the store’s fifth location in the city, but Hemrajani still remembers how life was when he only had his first store in Great Neck, working 16-hour days to make ends meet.
What sets City Mailroom apart from other chain mailroom and shipping store; it’s run by someone who is passionate about helping fellow entrepreneurs.
“I feel like I am lucky to give this to any of the small businesses in the area,” said Hemrajani. “There is a wide array of services we offer to help businesses grow.”
Long Island City is the fastest growing neighborhood in the United States, and with the impending arrival of Amazon’s HQ2, the small businesses figure to keep coming into the community. Over a year ago, Hemrajani recognized that there were would be a massive need for his services.
“I noticed about a year ago, all the recent construction in LIC and realized that the community is lacking a store like mine,” said Hemrajani. He added that the store would help save precious time for busy professionals coming into the neighborhood.
