Cleveland Shops: Dozens of Northeast Ohio stores offer deep discounts on gift certificates

If you're looking for a gift idea for family and friends this year, there's a way to support local businesses and save money at the same time!

CLEVELAND — A group called "Cleveland Shops," which is made up of dozens of local stores and businesses, has teamed up to help spread the message of "shopping small" and help Northeast Ohioans find local businesses they may not know about.

3News talked to Geiger's owner, and president of "Cleveland Shops," Gordon Geiger, about why this is so important right now. He says it comes down to how much shopping habits have changed. It’s easy to scroll on your phone and click “buy” on Amazon or other big box retailer’s sites.

“We wanted to try to figure out how to send the message, how to remind our local customers that having brick and mortar independent retailers is really important,” Geiger says.

“We think the timing is really right to start this public message of ‘Cleveland Shops’ and how it's going to be a fantastic community builder.”

The local businesses involved in "Cleveland Shops" are having a huge sale on gift certificates this week. They go on sale to the general public on Friday, Oct. 23, but you can sign up for their e-newsletter to get early access to the deals. Those who sign up can access the discounted gift certificates starting Wednesday, Oct. 21.

There are a limited supply of gift certificates available from each store. Click here to sign up.
