"Shop Pasadena" Campaign Urges Residents to Support Local Businesses During Holiday Season

Published : Tuesday, November 12, 2019 | 9:59 AM

The City of Pasadena and Visit Pasadena are launching a campaign to encourage people to shop local this holiday season. The “Shop Pasadena” campaign will put a spotlight on the hundreds of independent businesses located in Pasadena and encourage the community to shop small, dine local and show some #locallove throughout the holidays.

Every time shoppers and diners visit their corner shop, grab a bite at a local eatery, or buy a shirt from the neighborhood boutique, they are helping to support Pasadena’s independent business owners. Not to mention, shopping local keeps dollars in our local economy to support our schools, parks and vital community services.

As part of the “Shop Pasadena” campaign, independent businesses in each of the city’s commercial areas will serve as welcome stations for the campaign and distribute “Shop Pasadena” canvas tote bags (first-come, first-serve) beginning Saturday, November 30, 2019, in honor of Small Business Saturday.  Welcome stations across the city include:
