Shop WI Downtowns

#ShopWIDowntowns highlights your local community and makes it easier to discover new places to visit during the holiday season which hopefully leads to return visits all year long!

During the holiday season, we’ll share a Shop WI Downtowns map which will show Holiday Parades, Lighting and Shopping Events, Small Business Saturday Specials and more!

Throughout the year, it continues to be important to patronize Wisconsin Downtowns and support small businesses, artisans and craftspeople.  In addition to the map above, please check with your local chamber, Main Street office, Business Improvement District, and businesses to see local offers and events.

          • 90% of businesses in WI downtowns are locally owned.
          • $76: Average spent per shopper on Small Business Saturday.  Imagine if that happened every day or every week!
          • Sixty seven cents of every $1 spent in a local business is reinvested into our community.

Your WDAC Board and partners want to ensure all Wisconsin Downtowns are highlighted and supported this holiday season and all year long with a shared message.  The WDAC board has promoted this message via Wisconsin Public Radio the last two holiday seasons.  We are asking all of our Downtown Managers to help in spreading the shared message and creating a bigger impact by adding #ShopWIDowntowns to their social media posts.
