Our "Mom and Popshops
The Park Slope Merchants Associations
encourage you all to
SHOP LOCAL....BUY BROOKLYN.
Healthy, viable local business is essential to the vitality of any community.
Especially relevant in Park Slope where we relish our "small town "essence.
When you spend local, that money stays local, and is re-circulated many times over. A majority of Merchants doing business on our avenues, live here, shop here, send their kids to our schools,care about this neighborhood.
Businesses not based here, typically do not contribute to our local economy, or the quality of life we are all concerned about.
Our "Mom and Popshops" are Park Slope advocates on the front lines every day. Concerned about sanitation, crime, traffic congestion, safety, parking, development...
urban issues that effect us and our neighbors.
Our Merchant Associations organize to address these issues, networking together with other community groups to create the loudest voice .
So this Holiday Season come check out "the locals".
We are here for you.
Thursday December 4th and 11th The Zuzus will be part of the Second Annual Snowflake Event
Shops on 5th and 7th Avenue will stay open till 10PM .
We will have some nice wine to sip, some special finger foods to taste, and a 10% discount on all gift items over $25.00...if you know this secret password...just say,
"It's A Wonderful Life"
Please join us in celebrating this Holiday Season.
Fonda and all the zuzus
