Traverse City Supports Local Charities with Shop Your Community Day

A rare opportunity is being presented to consumers in Grand Traverse County Saturday.

You’ll have the chance to get some early holiday shopping out of the way all while supporting local charities.

Saturday is Shop Your Community Day in downtown Traverse City.

More than 60 stores are participating.

They’ll be marked with a flag in their window.

15% of all sales made will get donated to a local non-profit of the businesses choosing.

The Traverse City Downtown Development Authority says this event raised $25,000 last year.

They’re hoping to beat that number this year.

“It really promotes shopping local, giving back to the community, and really supporting our non-profits in the region,” said Traverse City Downtown Development Authority, Colleen Paveglio.

Shop Your Community Day hours are tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
