Shop local this Valentine’s Day weekend
February 11, 2015
Show our small businesses some love this weekend by shopping local this Valentine’s Day weekend!
Hidden Hearts is a new Valentine’s Day shopping event that rewards Portlanders for buying their Valentine’s gifts at local, independent retailers. The brainchild of Supportland co-founder Katrina Scotto di Carlo, Hidden Hearts showcases Portland’s small business community and gives shoppers the opportunity to cash in while supporting their neighborhood stores.
Shoppers can collect a Hidden Heart at each participating Supportland business through February 14. On February 15, each heart will turn into 20 Supportland Merits to use during a 24-hour shopping spree on supportland.com
As a champion for small businesses, Nick will help kick off Hidden Hearts at SW Portland’s Crafty Wonderland on Friday morning at 8 am.
Local small businesses are part of what makes Portland great. They employ half of our workforce and strengthens our neighborhoods. For every dollar spent at a small business, nearly 70 cents stay in our local economy.
Check out Supportland’s website for more information.
