This Valentine’s Day, Commissioner Nick Fish and Portland’s local small businesses ask Portlanders to shop locally for Valentine’s Day, according to the Commissioner’s office.

Portlanders are given an incentive to shop locally from small business owners for Valentine’s Day through Hidden Hearts, a Valentine’s campaign that gives rewards to shoppers. 

Hidden Hearts, co-founded by Katrina Scotto Di Carlo, supports the small businesses of Portland through the organization Supportland

To demonstrate the impact small business have on our local economy, Commissioner Fish and Katrina plan to visit Crafty Wonderland, a Portland based gift shop offering products made from local artists.

The visit will take place on February 13th, and other Portlanders are welcome to join. 

“Neighborhood small businesses are the backbone of our local economy: they employ half of Portland’s workforce, and for every dollar we spend at a local small business, almost 70 cents stays in the local economy. Supportlandmakes it even easier to go out and shop local,” said Comissioner Fish. 

The event will take place Friday, Feb 13, from 8:00am to 845am and will be hosted at Crafty Wonderland, 808 SW 10th Ave., Portland, OR 97205.
