2013-07-26 · By Editor
Vice Mayor Robert Garcia is asking residents to join him this Saturday, July 27, at 11:00 am, for the first “Shop Small Saturday.” Long Beach First Lady Nancy Foster will help kick-off the summer series as they encourage residents to shop and dine at a local restaurant and retail shop. Residents who have signed up have been given a central meeting location, and the group will then walk to both the restaurant and shop.
“This is a great way to shop local and support our local businesses,” said Vice Mayor Garcia. “Nancy Foster has been a great supporter of small businesses, and I’m thankful she is joining us for our first event.”
The dates of the first 3 Shop Small Saturdays for summer are:
- July 27
- August 31
- September 21
Sign-ups are being accepted for all 3 summer dates. The July 27 restaurant and shop have both been open less than a year and are located in Downtown Long Beach.
Those interested can RSVP by calling the Vice Mayor’s office at 562-570-6919, or on his facebook page.
