It’s Shop Local Saturday --- Support Your Community

How will you get out and support your community today?

It can be as simple as going to your local coffee shop (yes, Starbuck’s counts) or it can include shopping for clothes, dining at a local restaurant or even going to the movies.

It’s Simple --- Just get out and support the businesses that have invested in YOUR Community by setting up shop in your town. This is how you re-pay them.

Sammamish is Glamming Up

imageIn our (semi-little) town of Sammamish there has been a lot of activity at the local shopping center.

We’ll be getting a Trader Joe’s in a few months and the whole shopping center is being renovated. We’ve got a new façade on our local Bartell Drugs too.

A few doors away our Local Bike Shop (LBS) just moved into their new shop too. After being across the street in the Tallest Bike Shop West of 228th for 10 years. They even changed their name slightly to reflect a growing part of their business to become Pacific Bike & Ski.




Local Businesses are the Lifeblood of your Community

Community Matters

I like to see local businesses open and I encourage everyone to make the time to Support Your Local Businesses.


Get out and do your part!

No matter where you live. Support your local community. Shop Local. Try it this Saturday and every Saturday. Everyone wins!
