The home-grown Little Boxes campaign showcases the best of Portland’s unique and collaborative small business community. Over 175 locally-owned, independent retailers citywide participated in Little Boxes this year, and a purchase made at one Little Box store qualified you a 10 percent discount at the next Little Box store.
On Saturday morning, Nick joined Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici, Venture Portland Executive Director Heather Hoell, and betsy & iya owners Betsy Cross and Will Cervarich on a tour of local businesses in Portland’s Pearl neighborhood.
Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. When you shop locally, 70 percent of what you spend stays in that community.
Saturday night, Nick joined friends at the historic Mississippi Holiday Tree Lighting. Nick met residents in from the Mississippi neighborhood and connected with local business owners.
