Published on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 (9:43 a.m.)FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RENO, Nev. (November 26, 2013) – Shopping locally isn’t just a term used for local businesses. It’s a way of life that affects our entire community. When you buy from a local business, you’re doing more than helping them—you’re helping the entire local economy. And shopping locally doesn’t just affect us now; it helps our future and our children’s future, by ensuring that businesses stay around to provide jobs and positive experiences for our citizens.
This year the members of the Riverwalk Merchants Association, Creative Coalition of Midtown, Midtown District and California Avenue Merchants have banned together to create a one-of-a-kind shopping guide that supports the spirit of small business. Through December 31st, shoppers can pick up what’s called a holiday dash guide filled with dozens of deals towards local brands and local flavors with big savings for services, shopping, cocktails and seasonal dining in the cities hippest and fastest growing neighborhoods. The coupon guide is available through the Riverwalk District website at renoriver.org for instant download and at participating merchant locations.
“This is a creative way for small businesses to ban together and help each other generate traffic to our growing neighborhoods.” Said Scott Dunseath, owner of Reno eNVy. “I hope that this is the first step towards having our districts work together more often, and that our success can be an example for other growing communities.”
While your out look for the donation barrels for socks and mittens that are being collected for the Washoe County School District (WCSD) Children In Transition program. Donations benefit the children of families living in motels or shelters in the Midtown, CalAve and Riverwalk area.
