Shift Your Shopping for the Holidays!

The Holidays are upon us – full of good cheer, crisp days, and local shopping!

For the past year we’ve been talking about ‘shifting your spending’ and have highlighted everyone from banks to cryptozoologists to interior decorators. These are the businesses and organizations that make Poryland such a great city to live in and we hope that as we near the end of 2013, that you found a new place in our community to purchase your goods or services.

We at Portland Buy Local ask you to keep Portland’s businesses in mind as you map out your holiday shopping. From your Thanksgiving turkey to the table settings, from your holiday gifts to your dry cleaning, our members offer all that you’ll need to keep you sane and prepared during this busy season.

Some events to keep on your calendar:

  • Tap into the national campaign for Plaid Friday on November 29th, a local alternative to Black Friday. Read more about how you can flaunt your plaid fashion in support of Portland’s indepedents. If you are a business, feel free to use our branding and be in touch ( if have any special events that day!
  • On Small Business Saturday (November 30th) we are partnering with Portland’s Downtown District to host Shop for A Cause Day – participating businesses in Portland agree to donate a portion of their proceeds to the Milestone Foundation, working to help our city’s homeless population.

For our members we are offering exclusive ad opportunities – see here for more details of which local new outlets are participating and the special rates they are sharing with us!

This month, keep in touch with us on our facebook page to learn about creative ways to shift your holiday shopping. We will be posting warm cheer and local love throughout the coming months – Happy Holidays!

Thank you sustaining members!
