Shop local this fall, and bring a friend to save double

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A little peer pressure can be a good thing when you go shopping in downtown and Old Sacramento this fall: The savings double when you bring a friend.

The Downtown Sacramento Partnership and local businesses encourage you to Chalk It Up! art festival at participating downtown and Old Sacramento businesses and save 10 percent on all purchases. If you bring a friend, you’ll both save 20 percent.

Why is shopping local important? According to the independent business support organization The 3/50 Project, $68 of every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. Spend that at a national chain, and only $43 stays local. Buying online? None of it stays local.

Some of the downtown and Old Sacramento businesses participating in Shop Local include:
Bella Vue
Chef’s Olive Oil Mix
Chef’s Mercantile
Christmas & Co.
Gabby Girl
Her Closet Boutique
Mea Vita
Old City Kites
Taylor’s Art & Soul
U.BE.U. Fashion Boutique

Exclusions may apply to some offers, so check with participating businesses for more details.
