Shop Local Gift Guide
We have partnered with Old East Village BIA this holiday season to create a digital Shop Local Gift Guide! This guide will be available digitally for download and will give shoppers ideas as to where they can buy gifts for their loved ones. The focus will be on shopping local, and specifically in the core.

What do I need to submit to be featured?
– Your Business Name
– A Photo of Your Business
– A short blurb about your business/how you are gearing up for the holiday season

Where will the Holiday Gift Guide be available?
– Old East Village BIA website & social media channels

– The Shop Local Gift Guide will be launched on December 1, 2020

Our team will email a copy of the Shop Local Gift Guide to you prior to launch should you wish to promote it across your channels as well.  If you would like to be featured in this magazine, free of cost, please contact Colleen at  by November 10, 2020.
