AsiaTown is joining the national movement to support small businesses, but not just on Small Business Saturday. During November, we’re kicking off a month-long promotion of AsiaTown small businesses, and it all leads up to the national shopping holiday, Small Business Saturday, taking place on Saturday, November 28, 2020.
Join us for the #ShopSmallCrawl!
Did you know? AsiaTown is home to 22 restaurants, 5 local grocery stores, 9 retail shops, pharmacies, and herbalists, and 4 salons, all of which are small, family-owned businesses. When you choose to shop small in AsiaTown, you support a family, often the person behind the counter.
Choose Your Own Adventure
Help us support our local small businesses by completing the #ShopSmallCrawl challenge. Make the crawl your own! Complete as many challenges as you can, in any order and any way throughout the month of November.
As you complete each activity, share a picture with the #ShopSmallCrawl hashtag, and make sure to tag us @asiatowncleveland and @midtowncleinc. Tag your friends to encourage them to take the challenge too!
Complete at least six challenges for a chance to win an AsiaTown Gift Pack! This bundle will include at least $100 worth of snacks and goodies from small businesses in AsiaTown and MidTown.
Ways to Shop Local
Your participation in #ShopSmallCrawl will help the MidTown and AsiaTown neighborhoods continue to grow and thrive, given that for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. Furthermore, each dollar spent spurs an additional 50 cents in local business activity. Supporting small and local businesses is the best way to support our vibrant communities. So grab your friends, family, and co-workers and go #ShopSmallCrawl! Here are some tips for your shop local adventure.
- Fuel up! Order takeout, dine in, or grab a snack for your trip. You can find dim sum, coffee, Korean BBQ, pho, bubble tea, pad thai, and so much more in AsiaTown!
- Explore specialty grocers. Homemade kimchi, roast duck, bulk herbs, and lots of snacks!
- Gift now for pampering later. Purchase gift certificates for restaurants, shops, or facials. The perfect stocking stuffer!
- Share the love online. Write reviews on Google, Yelp, or Facebook, and post photos to local shops and restaurants. Leave shopping tips for future customers.
