Get Local! Guide East Village Shops Now Available

Our neighborhood boasts resident-serving retail outlets and unique offerings from creative merchants. The East Village is NOT a strip mall – thankfully the monotonous chain stores found in town after town are in short supply here. In an attempt to keep our neighborhood independent and unique, we publish our free Get Local! Guide to East Village Shops each year. The updated 7th Edition is available now!

Spending your money locally helps small businesses thrive in the East Village.
Local shopping also:

Keeps more money in our community
Creates local jobs with fair wages
Sustains small business owners who defend our neighborhood’s identity
Chooses creativity and personality over uniformity

The newly available 7th Edition lists more than 450 local merchants and is available in shops and cafes in the neighborhood. You can download the online version or pick up your free copy today!

We are working to preserve small businesses as an integral part of maintaining our diverse, livable community.

Shop Until Midnight – Help Local East Village Boutiques Survive

Small businesses in the East Village were hit hard by Sandy. The effects linger. If sales don’t pick up, it is possible you’ll see some of your favorite small, indie boutiques forced to close shop. Let Midnight Wednesday inspire you to do your holiday shopping local in our community where extra business is greatly needed this year!

Midnight Wednesday is a new holiday tradition in the East Village when you can enjoy some festive merriment at your favorite East Village boutiques and take care of all your holiday shopping. We will be open late to suit your busy schedule! Come enjoy holiday treats and special discounts while supporting local shopkeepers. Download your copy of the Get Local!
