EXPERIENCE the REAL CHICAGO THIS YEAR!
EAT, DRINK & BUY LOCAL!
Thank you for joining us to build a new Chicago tradition that strengthens our economy, expands employment, nurtures a sense of community, and provides a more relaxed, fun, and rewarding holiday experience. As customers, we spend a large portion of our annual shopping budget in November and December and by making it a year-round habit to direct a portion of those dollars to locally owned businesses, we can build a more prosperous Chicago.
Join your fellow Chicagoans and take "The Pledge" to shift a small percentage of your annual shopping dollars to locally owned stores, restaurants and entertainment establishments and together we will keep millions of dollars in Chicago. Based on studies of similar efforts, it is likely that we will generate 2-3 times as much economic activity in our community than if we spend our money at a national chain.
Chicago is a city of vibrant neighborhoods rich with character. By shopping local year-round, you experience Chicago's unique flavors and textures while supporting our city's local living economy.
