Enjoy Glendale Glitters while supporting local businesses
Is Christmas your favorite holiday ever? Do you start jamming holiday tunes in November? Is your Christmas tree already up?
Then Glendale Glitters is bound to be your new favorite event. You can kick off the holiday season with a beautiful light display, a cup of warm coffee while supporting your local small businesses. The light display will also be up to enjoy while dining and shopping on non-event days if you prefer to have a more relaxed shopping setting. This area has so many great small businesses to support all year round and there is always plenty of excitement happening here!
Small businesses have all kinds of quirky finds that the big guys do not
The best thing about small businesses is all the quirky finds! You will definitely find something unique for the ones you love while shopping small. Who knows, maybe you will find the perfect gift for that hard to shop for friend or loved one!
Create jobs for our community
Get a personalized shopping experience
Unlike big businesses where they mass produce everything, small businesses are there to serve your needs. This creates a more personalized shopping experience. They are more likely to listen to your wants and needs as a customer, because their size allows them to have a direct connection with their customers.
Make the neighborhood a home
Small businesses make an ordinary neighborhood a home. When you see the same smiling faces and interact with the businesses in your community it begins to become less of an impersonal experience. These friendly faces do not just want to sell you things, they want to serve your needs. And by shopping small you can know that you are supporting your local economy in a great way.
