Main Street Launch is proud to partner with the City of Oakland, Oakland Grown, the Oakland Chamber, and Visit Oakland to celebrate small businesses and shopping locally this holiday season. The deadline for small businesses to sign up for free marketing by Oakland Grown is October 31, 2018.
Oakland Grown’s holiday campaign kicks off on November 1 and runs through January 1, 2019. This campaign will feature participating businesses on shopping guides, in their Concierge Service, in digital marketing campaigns, and more. It is no-cost to participate, and Oakland Grown asks that participating businesses promote the campaign to their customers.
This campaign features businesses outside of retail, and any local business that creates a great holiday experience is encouraged to participate. Talk to your neighboring businesses and work together to hang decorations, play music in your stores, decorate your storefront window, offer holiday discounts, or any other strategy you can think of to make shopping local fun for customers.
Main Street Launch is here to help you decide how to take advantage of this opportunity and to help you plan your holiday promotions. Contact us anytime for connections to resources and support for your small business.
