Holiday shopping isn’t just about finding the perfect gift – although that’s easy to do on East Passyunk with our unique little boutiques and tasty spots to eat. When you shop small and local you support your entire community. Your support of East Passyunk businesses has helped create over 300 jobs in the last seven years alone. And because our businesses want to thank you they’ll be offering sales galore, free gifts with purchases, cocktails and more. So let’s get shopping!
