Another holiday season is upon us and it is important to remember to Shop MainStreet and Support Our Homegrown Businesses. This year’s Shop MainStreet Campaign provides tools for you to create unique and engaging events in time for the holiday shopping season. The Shop MainSreet Campaign includes a Shop MainStreet poster, 2015 Shop MainStreet Tool Kit for marketing and promoting your special holiday events, and 2015 Shop MainStreet Listing of Holiday Events. Visit the Shop NM MainStreet section of our website to download the holiday poster.
Shop MainStreet builds awareness of the quality services and retail businesses in New Mexico’s MainStreet districts. We know that dollars spent with locally-owned businesses recirculates in the community more than dollars spent in chain or big box stores. Choose local businesses and services in your MainStreet district this holiday season.
Many of our Local MainStreet programs will be hosting Shop Holiday & Small Business Saturday events
Small Business Saturday was launched several years ago to encourage people to spend money in their local businesses during the busiest shopping retail shopping weekend of the year. By visiting several specialized local shops you can purchase unique gifts from local businesses and impact the local economy. Some communities are hosting events on November 21 and others on November 28. Check out Shop Small Business Saturday in your community and get an early start on your holiday shopping.
