Make Shop Richmond Weekend an annual celebration of our locally owned businesses and a yearly kick-off of Richmonders reinvestment in Richmond.
signing this petition, we can show the Richmond City Government that
the people are behind this cause and that they should be too. We want
the Richmond City
Council and the Mayor to publicly and financially support Shop Richmond
Weekend as an official
celebration of the city. Richmond benefits tremendously when our local
businesses thrive. Lets make that happen.
making Shop Richmond Weekend Annual we will be supporting and helping
to create local Richmond businesses as well as generate additional tax
revenue that will directly support our community. The additional taxes
that shopping locally generates will fund Richmond Public Schools and
the city's infrastructure. Shopping local also protects the
environment, helps reduce crime, builds community, create jobs, not to
mention enhances and preserves the culture that is unique to Richmond.
Help Recession Proof Richmond!
Celebrate History. Think Future. Shop Richmond!
