It’s Shop ‘Til You Drop

This Saturday, August 14th the Gem City Black Business Month continues with the “Downtown Dayton Black Business Hop.” Hosted by the Downtown Dayton Partnership in partnership with the Greater West Dayton Incubator and Dayton Young Black Professionals Dayton Partnership, this shopping event invites you to hop from one black business to another to explore and patronize some of Dayton’s growing black owned businesses.

The forecast for this weekend cool and breezy with flashes of style and flair!

The Hop kicks off at Third Perk on E. Third at 11 am. After an afternoon of tasting, trying on and buying, the event will wrap with an after party at 1Eleven Flavorhouse on W. First Street. All participants have the opportunity to be entered to win raffle prizes.

Now this event is very exciting for two reasons.

One, several of the businesses (1Eleven Flavor House, Third Perk and Choice Juice Boxx) included in the hop are also participants this bingo game. Which means your odds to win a prize just doubled!

Two, this special event fits perfectly with our Shop ‘Til You Drop Weekend that is taking place all over Montgomery County. This weekend all black businesses are winning!

And you are too! This weekend Black Business Bingo shoppers can get 2x the entries when they shop or patronize the following retail listed below.

This week’s prize is a $20 gas card to Speedway so get out there and go bingo!!
