The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce reminds residents of the impact and benefits of shopping local this holiday season.


Why Should You Shop in Paso Robles This Holiday Season?

PASO ROBLES, CA (November 15, 2018) As many of you begin your holiday shopping, the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce would like to encourage you to Shop Paso. This goes beyond the popular “Shop Local,” and “Small Business Saturday” campaigns as we encourage you to patronize a variety of business within the City limits including restaurants, downtown shops, national chain stores, as well as service-oriented businesses such as printers, salons, caterers, and pet grooming. These businesses contribute to our economy, increase City revenues, and employ our residents. The following list includes the Chamber of Commerce top 10 reasons why you should Shop Paso this holiday season.

1. You Will Strengthen Our Economy

Taxable purchases made in Paso Robles contribute to the general fund for city-provided services like police, fire, library, senior services, and parks. In addition, money spent at local businesses is kept in our community because owners often purchase from other local businesses, service providers, and farms; thereby creating a cycle of local support.

2. You Will Create Jobs

Shopping in Paso Robles creates local jobs. Many of our businesses, use local printers, accountants, media, farms, attorneys, artists, and others, thereby expanding opportunities for local employment.

3. You Will Enjoy Our Community Character

Our independent businesses, especially in the Downtown, help to give Paso Robles its distinct personality. This unique character is a significant factor in the quality-of-life enjoyed by our residents and visitors.

4. You Will Strengthen Our Community

Paso Robles businesses are operated by people who live here, go to our churches, donate to non-profits, and coach soccer teams. When you spend money in their stores, you support neighbors.

5. You Will Feel Festive

Shopping and dining with family and friends is a holiday tradition that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

6. You’ll Find Unique Items In Unique Stores

View the seasonal window displays and discover a business you may not have been to before. When shopping at our independently owned stores, you can find unique products that aren’t available online leading to “where did you get that” moments.

7. You Can Try Before You Buy

Shopping in Paso Robles enables you to try on and try out items before you buy thereby saving you time and money.

8. You Will Find Parking Downtown

Beginning December 1st, the City’s Downtown Employee Parking Permit Program begins that encourages 250 employees to park in designated areas away from the downtown core, thereby freeing up spaces for locals and visitors.

9. You’ll Enjoy Local Cuisine

We’re lucky to have an amazing restaurant scene! Dine on dishes that you can’t find anywhere else.

10. You Won’t Be Thirsty

Shopping got you thirsty? We don’t know of many other communities that offer 20 downtown wineries and 4 breweries to taste from, along with world-class craft cocktails made from locally distilled spirits. Alternatively, drop your significant other off while you continue your shopping marathon!

Finally, the Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to stop by their Visitor Center on 1225 Park Street to equip your family and friends with free magazines, maps, brochures, and cards that include information about Paso Robles businesses, wineries, breweries, and community events.
