Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy.
Nearly 20,000 small businesses call Portland home. They provide more than 270,000 jobs. And for every $1 spent at a local business, 70¢ stays in the community.
Today, Nick celebrated Little Boxes, Portland’s annual holiday shopping event, in the Williams Business District.
Little Boxes features over 200 participating local businesses and is a great way to do your holiday shopping while supporting the Portland economy, getting great discounts, and discovering new places to buy local.
You can learn more about Little Boxes here and join the fun by downloading the app or visiting a participating business.
