From the EV Grieve inbox...
In an attempt to keep our neighborhood independent and unique, the East Village Community Coalition (EVCC) publishes the free Get Local! Guide to East Village Shops each year. The updated 5th Edition is available now!
Spending your money locally helps small businesses thrive in the East Village. Local shopping also:
• Keeps more money in our community
• Creates local jobs
• Sustains small business owners who defend our neighborhood's identity
• Chooses creativity and personality over uniformity
The newly available 5th Edition lists 400+ local merchants and is available in shops and cafes in the neighborhood. You can download the online version here. (PDF)
We are working to preserve small businesses as an integral part of maintaining our diverse, livable community. In addition to the Get Local! Guide, the EVCC is researching ways to maintain retail diversity in our community.
