Why Shop Local

There’s a special connection that comes with shopping and dining local. Whether it’s a friendly face that greets you at your favorite store or eatery or the shop owner who gives back to their community, Pasadena’s businesses need support from the local community in order to keep their doors open and the lights on. In addition to the special connections to be had, shopping local helps to keep dollars in our local economy to support our schools, parks and vital community services.
