"Unchain" Yourself and Shop Local Saturday
Fri, 11/16/2012 - 05:52 RCN Newsdesk
Small, independent shops in Bellevue, Covington, and Newport are participating in Buy Cincy's Cincinnati Unchained event Saturday. Here is how the event is described on its website:
Break the big box chains and start your holiday shopping locally – Cincinnati Unchained returns on Saturday, November 17, 2012. Shop local-only for one day, and help your economy, community, and neighbors. Every dollar you spend at a locally-owned business generates approximately three times more economic activity than a dollar spent at the typical “big-box.” By choosing to shop locally-owned for just one day, we can help support the local entrepreneurs in our own neighborhoods who help make Cincinnati unique. To help celebrate Cincinnati Unchained, local businesses from around Greater Cincinnati are offering special one day only deals on November 17. In addition to these specials, neighborhood businesses will be giving away gift baskets filled with goodies from participating local businesses. All you need to do to be entered to win is visit local businesses throughout the day.
Eighteen shops in Bellevue, four shops in Covington, and seven shops in Newport are part of the event. Read more about it by clicking here.
