Hidden Hearts is a Valentine’s Day shopping event that showcases Portland’s great neighborhood small businesses. It was created by Supportland co-founder Katrina Scotto di Carlo as a way to reward those who shop locally.
Here’s how it works: collect ‘Hidden Hearts’ at participating Supportland businesses today and tomorrow. Download the mobile app or pick up a rewards card in store. On Sunday, each heart will become 20 Supportland Merits to use towards great shopping rewards.
Nick is proud to serve as Council liaison to Venture Portland. Venture Portland is the champion for our 50 neighborhood business districts.
Neighborhood small business are the backbone of our local economy. They strengthen our community and support good causes. For every dollar spent at a local small business, 70 cents stays in our community.
Special thanks to Venture Portland, Heather Hoell, Supportland, Katrina Scotto di Carlo, the Bipartisan Café, Broadway Books, and Crafty Wonderland for a great day!
