Little Boxes Rewards Holiday Shoppers for Going Local

Jyssica Local Business

Shopping small in Portland can mean saving big. And winning big too!

As we discussed in our last blog, one of the reasons that Portland is considered a “small business town” is the amount of collaboration that happens in this city.


Here in our town, the idea of placing community over competition is more than a hashtag. It’s a way of life. And this includes a community Black Friday Weekend sale from many of the best small box shops in the city.


Enter Little Boxes.


Shopping in Portland’s Little Boxes® on Black Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (and throughout the holiday season) is “an alternative to the hubbub of the big box stores. It’s a great way to find unique gifts for everyone on your list, enjoy the hospitality and warmth of Portland’s independently owned neighborhood shops, have fun with your family and friends, and–just maybe–win some pretty incredible prizes, just by taking a stroll in Portland’s best shopping districts.”


And we’re excited to be a part of this wonderful event this year!


We thought you’d be thrilled to know that there are 5 other businesses here in the Beaumont Village Business District participating in the Little Boxes extravaganza this year.


So what does that mean for YOU?


On November 23-25, you will get to enjoy all of the following discounts from these shops in the Beaumont Village.
