To kick off the 2020 holiday shopping season, the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce (GVCCC) and the businesses along Bleecker Street are hosting our second annual #ShopBleecker campaign to encourage consumers to support Bleecker Street businesses. Throughout November, select retailers along with the 20 blocks that comprise the beautiful and historic Bleecker Street, will be hosting in-store events and offering special deals & promotions.
Over the past few years, Bleecker Street has been in the news due to its growing number of vacancies throughout the corridor. This leaves many with the impression that the future is bleak on Bleecker. This could not be further from the truth. For this reason, the GVCCC community is promoting the historic Bleecker Street corridor in order to combat both the vacancy and perception issues facing Bleecker Street.
By supporting Bleecker Street commerce, consumers will put money back to work in the area. This is important because small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. They create a sense of community identity, address community retail needs, provide employment opportunities for local residences, and provide a strong economic foundation for community and City growth. #ShopBleecker provides New Yorkers an opportunity to showcase their support for the local small businesses and neighborhoods we care about. We hope you join us this November!
