On a sticky summer day, it is not unusual to see NYC stores keep their doors open to draw shoppers in with a cool blast of air. This is why New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs kicked off a “Shut the Front Door!” initiative on July 22. This initiative is attempting to educate businesses about being economical in their energy usage. On the 22nd, roughly 200 volunteers fanned out across the five boroughs to encourage businesses to shut their front doors.
