The independent retailers of Astoria are proud to announce the Small Business Saturday Retail Crawl that promises to be bigger than ever! More days, more stores, and bigger prizes!

Shop Small Astoria

Nicole Panettieri, owner of one of participating stores, The Brass Owl, is the organizer of the collective Astoria retailers group, Shop Small Astoria. “I began Shop Small Astoria in 2015 to unite the local boutiques in the neighborhood and promote the amazing shopping opportunities we have here,” says Panettieri. “After a difficult 2 years due to the pandemic, we are faced with even more business obstacles. Supply chain issues, inflation, war, and gas prices have severely affected business in 2022. We look forward to this event to get the community out and support our businesses.”

This year the crawl has grown from 12 stores in 2015 to 26 shops! All shops involved are independently owned, have non-food related retail based businesses, and have an Instagram presence. In addition to growth in participants, the length of the event has been increased to 7 days. This is to give customers more flexibility with time, and to dilute crowds in the stores with everyone’s safety in mind.

Lastly, we added a grand prize! From the completed crawl passports, one customer will be chosen at random to win a $150 to a local restaurant Queens Room and a free month at Yug Wellness. A total of $270 value. 

DATE: Monday 3/21 – Sunday 3/27

WHAT: Customers must make a purchase at 10 stores during the time frame (purchase of $10+) and they will get a passport stamped or initialed. They must return the completed passport to The Brass Owl By Tuesday 3/28*Each participating location will get passports to hand out*Also this is only for retail purchases, not services

PRIZE: When customers complete 10 stores they get a tote bag filled with swag. 

GRAND PRIZE: 1 shopper at random will get a $150 to a local restaurant Queens Room and a free month at Yug Wellness. A total of $270 value.
