Shift to Small: Buy Your Basics Local, brought to you by StayLocal and Good Work Network, is a joint effort to celebrate National Small Business Week by encouraging New Orleanians to buy their weekly purchases at local businesses from April 29th, 2018 to May 5th, 2018.

From pharmacies to groceries, shoppers will be challenged to shift their weekly purchases from national retailers to local businesses. When residents go to participating businesses, post about it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #ShifttoSmall, and tag @StayLocal and @GoodWorkNetwork they will be entered to win the grand prize: (2) VIP Canopy Memberships* for Bayou Boogaloo. The more businesses they visit and post about the better their chances. Sign up here to join the challenge today!

It's easy to find great local art and specialty items, but where do you make your weekly purchases? Buy your paper towels? Groceries? Make-up? Office supplies? StayLocal believe that every dollar counts and when New Orleanians choose to purchase from independent businesses our entire community benefits.

The Shift to Small campaign begins with a kick-off event, Fuel Up to Shift at Backatown Coffee Parlour (301 Basin Street) on April 27th, 2018 from 8am - 11am. When you take the pledge to support small businesses and purchase any item at Backatown during the event, you will receive a free 12-ounce coffee. Additionally, during National Small Business Week, Backatown will provide a 10% off "Stay Local" discount April 29-May 5. At Fuel Up to Shift representatives from StayLocal and Good Work Network will also hand out promos and discounts to encourage New Orleanians to shop local during Shift to Small Week.

*A Canopy Club Membership includes three days of reserved stage-front seating; special catered cuisine (including a crawfish boil and whole roasted pig); private bar with complimentary beverages; climate-controlled restroom, shade, & misting fans; and special merchandise and discounts at local businesses.
