The City of Temecula has kicked off its #ShopYourBlock social media campaign, a visual storyboard featuring Temecula’s economic backbone, which are small businesses. In an effort to recognize and promote shopping local during these ever-changing times, the City has collaborated with local photographer Jimmy Fu, to visit and photograph over 125 small businesses around town. This 14 week social media campaign features images of local business owners, products, employees, food, office spaces and storefronts. Locations of these small businesses are comprised of areas all over Temecula city limits, including Old Town, Temecula Parkway, Vail Ranch Headquarters, Jefferson Avenue, Margarita Road, Winchester Road and Rancho California Road.
“We wanted a way to safely showcase the entrepreneurial spirit, resiliency and strength of our local business community. We chose to accomplish this by capturing their essence through a camera lens. It is our hope, that the community will see these images and get inspired to visit and shop local.” says Temecula’s Mayor Pro Tem, Maryann Edwards.
The City of Temecula strongly supports and joins hands with the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Shop Local promotional effort.
