Shop local this holiday season during the first annual Kew Gardens Holiday Crawl.
Thirty-five businesses are joining together for one week for a shopping event not only as an invitation to residents to utilize their local business for their holiday shopping, but to engage the local businesses with the community.
“We were thinking about how to build community spirit and what the season really means,” said Grace Anker, owner of The Potter’s Wheel in Kew Gardens and organizer of the crawl. “We floated the idea to a few of the local businesses and it just kept growing and expanding from there.”
The Kew Gardens Holiday Crawl will take place from Dec. 3 through Dec. 10. Each participating business will have their own unique discounts, raffles, demonstrations or free offerings through the crawl.
