In an effort to assist local businesses and encourage our residents to shop local and support our community, the City is launching its shop local program campaign again for 2023, #ShopPalmdale. Promoting a shop local program keeps more money in the community as well as supports job growth. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base. Saturday, November 25 is officially Small Business Saturday – but in the City of Palmdale, we’re celebrating “Small Business” all month long!
Event line up:
To kick off the month celebrating small businesses, the City will give away $50 gift cards to various local retailers. To participate share any of the City’s Shop Palmdale and shop local posts on social media with the hashtag #ShopPalmdale between November 7-25. Several winners will be randomly selected each week and awarded a $50 gift card. This contest will run November 1-November 30. There is no better time than now to shop local and eat local. The City acknowledges the incredible challenges faced by businesses, both big and small, throughout our community and encourages residents to shop and eat local. Every local business and restaurant rely on all of us in order to continue operating, and we need to keep our community thriving and boost our local economy. Please be sure use the hashtag #ShopPalmdale to be entered into the contest. Winners will be contacted through the social media platform used to share the City’s post.
Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. All Palmdale residents are encouraged to Shop Small this day. You might not realize it, but every time you shop at that neighborhood business or buy a gift from the local artist down the street, you are shopping small and making a difference. In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community.When you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday—and all year long — you can help create a big impact.
