Shop Downtown Pomona! ..Why?

SAVE YOUR LOCAL MERCHANTS!
Why Shop Local?

What’s Spent Here, Stays Here

• Locally owned businesses spend their profits locally, purchase
more goods from local suppliers, and employ their own office and support staff.

Get More for your Money

• When more money gets re-circulated in the community, general
prosperity as well as tax revenues increase, creating a more vibrant and sustainable economy.

Local Businesses Offer Unique Character

• A wide variety of locally owned businesses contributes to a stronger local identity and cultural diversity, creating an attractive place to live and visit.

Neighborly

• Strengthening our locally owned business community promotes
authentic and meaningful relationships between employees,
business owners, customers, suppliers and neighbors.
• Business owners, who live in town, take better care of the environment, participate in public life and local charities.

Now that I've finally been to the art walk, I definitely will be shopping some more in that area for curious goods and great beer! Too bad its over 3 miles from my side of Pomona :(

Unfortunately, Claremont, Montclair and Upland get most of my money since there is nothing around here but In & Out Burger for Pomona.

But the shops on 2nd st. are really cool! My wife loved the vintage clothing store by the plaza. She bought a few things.
