In an effort to assist local businesses and encourage our residents to shop local and support our community, the City is launching shop local program campaign again for 2021, #ShopPalmdale. Promoting a shop local program keeps more money in the community as well as supports job growth. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base. Initially this program will launch for the upcoming holiday season coinciding with nationally known events: Small Business Saturday and Shop Local Week.
Event line up:
November 12 -December 31 Purchase/lease a vehicle at a Palmdale Dealership
Gift card giveaway for purchasing or leasing a car in at the Palmdale Auto Mall. Customers will receive a $500 gift card for new car purchases and leases and a $250 gift card for used car purchases. Each of the dealerships will provide gift cards to customers who make an eligible purchase starting November 12- December 31, 2021 (or while supplies last).
November 27 Kicks off the shop local retailers gift card program with a contest giving residents an opportunity to win a $100 gift card by posting photos of themselves shopping at their favorite Palmdale business on social media with the hashtag #ShopPalmdale. A winner will be randomly selected each week and awarded a $100 gift card. This contest will run November 27-December 23, 2021. There is no better time than now to shop local and eat local. The City acknowledges the incredible challenges faced by businesses, both big and small, throughout our community and encourages residents to shop and eat local. Every local business and restaurant rely on all of us in order to continue operating, and we need to keep our community thriving and boost our local economy. Please be sure use the hashtag #ShopPalmdale to be entered into the contest. Winners will be contacted through the social media platform used to post their photo.
Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. All Palmdale residents are encouraged to Shop Small this day. You might not realize it, but every time you shop at that neighborhood business or buy a gift from the local artist down the street, you are shopping small and making a difference. In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. When you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday—and all year long — you can help create a big impact.
