Support Neighborhood Businesses and Their Employees Today
Portlanders it’s time to show your love for local. Over the last month neighborhood businesses city wide have been hit hard by everything from explosions to theft and vandalism. To make it easy to show your support neighborhood business districts have created fun events and opportunities to get involved:
Nob Hill (explosion)
Pearl District (vandalism)
With the holiday season upon us and Small Business Saturday just 2 weeks away let’s make sure the season is merry and bright for all. Pledge to keep your hard-earned money ‘home for the holidays’ by shopping locally and supporting the neighborhood businesses that make Portland Portland this holiday season. Localize the Season with more than 20 festive events in neighborhood business districts. Update your Facebook or Twitter with the ‘I pledge to SHOP LOCAL’ image and #PledgeLocalPDX. When you shop at local neighborhood businesses, 70% of every dollar you spend stays in Portland’s local economy and that is something worth celebrating.
