In an effort to reinvigorate the 20 blocks that make up Bleecker Street, where rocketing rent is taking a toll on local businesses, The Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce has organized a special shopping event, #ShopBleecker. On November 18, #ShopBleecker will become a retail experience that captures the history and spirit of the famed neighborhood. At this event, shoppers will be able to find holiday gifts that you can only get in New York. Moreover, shoppers get to enjoy a retail experience that can only go down in the Big Apple.
On #ShopBleecker Day, shoppers will not only be able to earn raffle tickets, but also some sweet #ShopBleecker swag including limited edition tote bags featuring the work of local artist Kazuya Morimoto, shopping bag key chains, and ornate pens. Plus, keep an eye out for these 15 gifts, that capture New York and this historical hood. Deals vary per store, but for best prices, check out the November 18th event. Mention #ShopBleecker for deals through November and beyond.
