Shop Small, Support Local

   

In partnership with the City of Pleasanton, the Pleasanton Downtown Association presents Shop Small, Support Local – a campaign to encourage the Pleasanton community to shop, dine and visit local this holiday season. The campaign emphasizes the importance of supporting small businesses, especially now as many business sectors are open with limited capacity restrictions, and as the holiday season nears. Visit www.pleasantondowntown.net/shopsmall for a list of participating downtown businesses. 


Our local businesses need your support now more than ever. 

To support Pleasanton businesses, the City has partnered with Bludot to create a PLEASANTON OPEN FOR BUSINESS interactive listing with mapping features. Are you a business interested in being included on the list? See the website HERE and click on +List My Business. Once your profile is active, you can customize it with business information, specials, business hours, and more. Want to show your support and post the Support Local image at your business? Download HERE and print.

If you are refraining from shopping in-store or dining outdoors and would like to support a Pleasanton business listed, please consider online shopping for curbside pick-up, ordering takeout, or purchasing a gift card to support now and use later.


First, prioritize and take all health and safety precautions for yourself, your family, and others in our community. Our community health as a whole depends on working together, and our small businesses are vital to the City of Pleasanton’s economy. We want to ensure that they stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures. If you are not able to visit stores and restaurants physically, there are several ways you can support them: 

  1. Shop online or via phone. Many  Downtown Pleasanton and Stoneridge Shopping Center  businesses have online shopping available. 
  2. Buy a gift card. If you do not need anything specific at the moment, but still want to support local, buy gift cards to spend later. You can buy gift cards for many local restaurants, too. 
  3. Support local restaurants by ordering takeout or delivery and tip the same amount as you would dining in. See our Open for Business page for a list of Pleasanton restaurants that are open. Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, Pleasanton Downtown Association, and Visit Tri-Valley have also compiled lists of restaurants that are providing take out with curbside pick-up or delivery with current operating days and hours.  
  4. Follow, like, and stay informed with your local businesses on Social Media. Many stores and restaurants post up-to-date information on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Share this information widely so others know how to support local.
