2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Page 1




























Shop Small For The Holidays STARTING AT $10 “Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.” - Anna Lappe Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance welcomes you to our historic shopping district where you can shop for everyone on your list! You won’t find big box stores, long lines at the register, or mass-produced items in Downtown Harrisonburg. Instead, our streets are lined with charming local, independent stores ranging from art and clothing to outdoor recreation. Why shop small? You’ll discover quality, one-of-kind, artisan items that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll receive quality and personalized attention from small business owners and their employees who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. Most importantly, you’ll make a significant impact on our community by investing your money locally. When you spend $100 at local, independent businesses, $68 dollars gets returned to Harrisonburg. When you spend $100 at national businesses, only $43 gets returned to the city. When you buy anything online, $0 gets returned. By shopping small, you’re investing in our schools, roads, and other services we use daily with every local purchase. Help us create a downtown that we all love by investing money in our community and joining us for a special holiday experience downtown this season. Happy Holidays!
