Support Small Business Saturday; Love Local This Holiday Season

by Holly Rakoci, Director, Casa Grande Main Street

While this holiday season will no doubt look different from past years, that doesn’t mean we can’t spread holiday cheer and love through our community. That is why Casa Grande Main Street is encouraging everyone to “Love Local CG” by shopping and supporting our local businesses this holiday season!

When you begin buying gifts for your loved ones, ask yourself: Is there a local restaurant where they really enjoy eating — maybe Cook E Jar, Big House Café, BeDillon’s Restaurant, Eva’s, or CGQ House? Is there a service provided by a local business they would appreciate? A tattoo from Sticks N’ Bones Tattoo Shop? How about a massage, pedicure or haircut? Is there someone local who sells or can make a product that they can use? Perhaps a sugar scrub from Arizona Native Lotions & Soaps or a piece of antique furniture from Riley Switch? Maybe you’d like to “Leave Your Mark on the Park” and purchase a license plate for the Neon Sign Park.


It’s probable that the answer to many of these questions will be “Yes!” So, before you make the drive to Phoenix, or click “Add to Cart” on Amazon, consider seeing what your hometown has to offer and spending your money here.

Loving Local by shopping and supporting local businesses has many benefits. Not only does the sales tax go back into the City, but you’re helping provide jobs and livelihoods to other members of our community. By shopping local, you’re helping others in our town to pay their bills, support their family, and are allowing them to put their money back into the community, as well.
One of the best places to look for these local businesses is in our Historic Downtown. From local restaurants to local pet food shops, Downtown has it all!

Come see what Historic Downtown has to offer this Holiday Season! Show your support for our local businesses on Saturday, Nov. 28, for Small Business Saturday. Take a stroll down Florence Street after dark and enjoy our beautiful holiday light display. Go have a fun photoshoot at the award-winning Neon Sign Park.

Come visit our incredible Downtown and Love Local CG!
