Because “Buy” Was Already Taken: Shop Brooklyn

November 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment

We’ve already mentioned to you about Buy Brooklyn. Well, there seems to be another concept peaking the minds of our local government, and now have Shop Brooklyn to promote:

“Shop Brooklyn” is an awareness campaign highlighting the uniqueness of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods and thriving shopping corridors, re-introducing Brooklyn to Brooklynites, and inviting tourists and visitors to experience this cultural and shopping destination—not just during the holidays, but year-round. In addition to the holiday discounts being offered borough-wide, as part of the “Shop Brooklyn” campaign, many Brooklyn retailers, restaurants, bars, and other service providers will offer special “Brooklyn Bonuses” on November 28 (“Black Friday”—now renamed “Brooklyn Friday”) and each weekend from November 23 through December 21.

On this Wed (11/19), head down to the Fulton Mall and look out for a bunch of governmental type folks hanging out somewhere to promote the shopping season. (They have told us the precise location in the mall, so it sounds kinda like they want you to scavenge for them.)
