Meet Dave Bhavesh, owner of The Gift Shop

This afternoon we stopped in to say hello to Dave Bhavesh, owner of The Gift Shop, located at 778 Newark Avenue.  The Gift Shop has been in business, on Newark Avenue, since July of 1996.  They have a large variety of traditional, ethnic merchandise, including brand name perfumes and Avon Cosmetics. In addition to gifts and merchandise, wireless phone service can also be obtained at the store, as the shop is an authorized dealer for LycaMobile phone equipment and service.

Dave is proud to say that he is the president of the Newark Avenue Jersey City Chamber of Commerce.  He has also won an impressive 57 awards from Avon Cosmetics, who, with Dave’s help has donated over $1 billion to women’s causes. “I’m very active in the Indian community, on Newark Avenue, and I want to make sure our readers know that there are as many as 27 restaurants, in India Square, as it is known, serving all types of traditional cuisine.”
