Only 10 Days Left to Localize the Season
The weather outside is frightful but neighborhood businesses are still delightful! Along with Venture Portland’s Board of Directors, I’ve once again pledged to do all of my holiday shopping in Portland’s neighborhood business districts. So far this season I’ve shopped with elected officials, attended multiple tree lightings, participated in festive district events and found great gifts in 14 neighborhood business districts (Beaumont, Belmont, Central Eastside, Hawthorne, Hillsdale, Kenton, Kerns, Mississippi, Multnomah Village, NE Broadway, Nob Hill, Pearl, West End, Williams) and can’t wait to stretch my holiday dollars with business district discounts through the rest of the season. I hope you will join me – you’ll find festive lights, delicious deals and lots of holiday cheer while shopping in your favorite neighborhood business district. I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017!
