Shop Your Community Day is November 12, 2011

Downtown Traverse City will continue to give back to the community on Saturday, November 12, 2011 during Shop Your Community Day.  For every purchase made at the following stores, 15% of the sale will be donated to the participating organization of the customer’s choice!  It’s that easy to support your favorite non-profit, and get a jump start on holiday shopping.  In 2011, with the support of our community, Downtown Traverse City gave back a record setting $23,000 during this one-day promotion. The goal is to exceed the $25,000 mark this year.
Downtown Traverse City has always put charitable donations high on the priority list. Donations including goods, services and sponsorship of events benefit the local community all year long. When making local purchases, the business keeps three times more dollars in our community, supports and strengthens local jobs and preserves and enhances our unique neighborhoods, parks and public services here in Traverse City. Shopping local keep’s our community alive and has a profound economic impact on the Traverse City.

“We are blessed with a healthy Downtown here in Traverse City, but continued support of our local businesses is critical. A commitment to do so during this one-day event will also result in greatly benefiting the nonprofit organizations in our community. This truly is a win-win,” says Colleen Paveglio, DDA/DTCA Marketing Director.
