Go Local Passport Wraps Tomorrow

The end-of-season Go Local! Passport celebration will take place tomorrow in conjunction with the Tacoma Farmers Market in Theater Square. The five-month project encouraged people to shop locally--thousands of Passports featuring thirty local businesses on a downtown Tacoma map were offered to local shoppers. Participating retailers would stamp the Passport when presented by shoppers and provide value-added offers such as discounts or complimentary services.

The event will run between 12 noon and 2:00 p.m. tomorrow--and it represents the community’s final opportunity to win prizes, with one lucky person taking home the end-of-season grand prize.

The Go Local! Passport idea was conceived by Leadership Tacoma 2007. The Passport was a successful collaboration between the BIA, the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, Pierce Transit, the Downtown Merchants Group, and Tacoma Farmers Market. Additional thanks are due to Simpson Tacoma Kraft, the gurus, Franciscan Health System, United Way of Pierce County, and Venture Bank for their support.
