Olympia, WA – Many small businesses located in downtown Olympia are concerned that they might have to close their doors for good due to COVID-19. Now, the community has an opportunity to help.
The Olympia Downtown Alliance created the Love Oly Shop & Dine Week 2020 campaign to bring more business to restaurants and shops.
“We have an amazing sense of community in downtown Olympia,” said Todd Cutts, Executive Director of the Olympia Downtown Alliance. “So many community members are asking how they can help support downtown businesses and show their love, so that’s how this campaign was born.”
Love Oly runs September 28 through October 4, 2020. During that week, customers may pick up a "Passport" from participating businesses or access and print one from the Alliance website. During the week of the promotion, when a customer purchases an item valued at $10 or more from a participating business, a “Love Oly” sticker will be affixed to their “Passport.” Once the customer has 5 stickers affixed to the “Passport”, they can redeem it for their choice of a “Love Oly” facemask, hat, or bumper sticker. They will also be entered to win gift certificates to participating businesses.
