In partnership with District 2’s Atlanta Intown paper, Councilmember Kwanza Hall is launching “Keep It INtown,” a campaign to encourage Atlantans to shop local and buy local. One of the components of the campaign is a series of segments on City Channel 26. Each segment will feature three District 2 small, independent businesses. We envision 4-5 segments in 2012, with the possibility of extending beyond next year.
The first segment, “Keep It INtown for the Holidays,” debuted today on City Channel 26. It features Highland Bakery, Seven74 Boutique, and Vintage Barber Shop. Please see this link to the segment: http://vimeo.com/32586777
If you would like to nominate District 2 small, independent businesses from your neighborhood for segments in 2012, please do!
