Tomorrow (November 24th) Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will be launching his Shop Brooklyn promotional campaign. If you would like to attend or cover the press conference, the details are:
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24
686 FULTON STREET (AT S. PORTLAND)
(OUTSIDE OF GREENLIGHT BOOKSTORE)
Borough President Markowitz will be joined by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation, local Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) and merchant groups, elected officials and local business owners to officially launch the initiative.
“Shop Brooklyn” is an awareness campaign highlighting the uniqueness of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods and thriving shopping corridors, re-introducing Brooklyn to Brooklynites and urging them to “Shop Local”--- while also inviting visitors to experience the borough as a cultural and shopping destination.
As part of the “Shop Brooklyn” campaign, Brooklyn retailers, restaurants, bars, and other service providers will offer special “Brooklyn Bonuses” starting November 27 (“Black Friday”—renamed “Brooklyn Friday”) and running through December 25.
Participating retailers will display the “Shop Brooklyn” logo in store windows. To find out what kind of bonuses will be available along Park Slope's Fifth Avenue, keep checking in at ishopbrooklyn.com or check back here over the next few days.
Yes, the holiday shopping season has begun!
