Rediscovering Portland’s locally-owned businesses

Shopping locally is easier than ever!

Just in time for National Indie Retailers Week, Neighborhood Notes is launching its new Smartphone app, PDX Localist.

A great way to see Portland’s unique and vibrant culture, this free and easy-to-use app is the ultimate guide to our city’s diverse, locally-owned business community.

Use the app to discover where to shop in Portland’s colorful Business Districts – like charming Beaumont Village or trendy Nob Hill.  Learn fun things to do around the city, and keep up on the latest indie business news. 

Local businesses are the backbone of our neighborhoods – and of Portland’s economy.  For every dollar spent, 70 cents stays in the community.

Download the app and shop locally! And bookmark Neighborhood Notes’ website to keep updated on the best new businesses and restaurants in town.
