SHOP OUTSIDE THE BOX!

“What three independently owned business owners would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps these businesses around.” This is the message of the national 3/50 Project – Saving the Brick and Mortar Businesses this nation is built on.

Bloomsday weekend is a gathering of individuals with the same mission – to make it up the hill, finish and claim success! That is the same mission of the brick and mortar businesses in our community. Shop Outside the Box in downtown Spokane is a Buy Local effort to bring like minded individuals into the fabulous small businesses in downtown Spokane, not only locals but all the visitors as well.

Shop Outside the Box encourages you to warm up for Bloomsday by walking downtown on Friday or Saturday and into the participating stores. The Map to all participating stores can be found on NoseyParker.net/INW for download or just check out which stores are participating and pick one up while you are there. Shop Outside the Box also encourages the community to “Tell Your Story”. Nosey Parker and Buy Local would like to know your favorite shopping story. Do you know a terrific salesperson? Community Give-Back? Above and beyond service? Go to NoseyParker.net/INW and tell your story. The best stories will be posted on NoseyParker.net/INW, Facebook NoseyParkerINW and Twitter NoseyParkerINW.
