During GEW

Celebrate the close of Global Entrepreneurship Week and kick off the holiday shopping season by saluting local retail entrepreneurs, those shops and restaurants that anchor our Main Streets. 

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 23, enjoy your hometown restaurants, shop in your Main Street marketplace and support Kansas City area small business and entrepreneurship. And, of course, shop local all year long!

You won't have to go far. Great locally owned, independent establishments can be found in every corner of the metro area. 

Share the fun of this special shopping day by posting and tagging photos directly on ourFacebook page, or share them to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ShopLocalKC.

(Look for a reply from KCSourceLink, and be sure to respond fast.
