Small Business Saturday and Holiday Shopping 2020


Shop local on East Passyunk this holiday season!

Your support of local businesses this holiday season is more important than ever. Shopping for family and friends on East Passyunk Avenue is a chance to find unique gifts from hundreds of independently owned stores, restaurants and services, and is a meaningful way to make sure that they're here for you down the road.

From boutiques with one-of-a-kind items and cafes and restaurants providing delicious food and beverages, East Passyunk has it all. Even more businesses are providing private shopping, online sales, gift cards, or other offerings. The business community of East Passyunk Avenue is thankful for your support, and we look forward to lifting holiday spirits together (with our masks on).
