Wish you could do more to support the local businesses in downtown Trenton? It’s easier than you think. Just share a little love on social media and, whenever you can, include the hashtag #LoveLocalTrenton when you post.
#LoveLocal is more than a hashtag. It's a movement to save small businesses and downtown districts everywhere.
TDA launched its own #LoveLocal campaign during the coronavirus pandemic to help keep the businesses in downtown Trenton open by sharing their stories and promoting their services. The campaign has grown to include a number of initiatives to support our businesses.
Eat Out and Take Out
Pick up food at one of Trenton’s many wonderful restaurants and eateries, known for their diverse cuisines, imaginative menus and friendly service.
Purchase a Love Local e-Gift Card
TDA wants to make it as easy and convenient as possible for you to support local. Gift cards can be redeemed at any participating merchant in downtown Trenton. Click here for details.
Shop Safe and Shop Small
Stay safe by masking up and shopping local. You’ll find less foot traffic than at the mall and enjoy more personal service. Best of all, you’ll help keep our small businesses open.
Explore Our Historic City
A walk through downtown Trenton will take you past beautiful historic buildings and cultural sites such as the NJ State Museum and Old Barracks Museum.
Follow TDA on social media for the latest contests, special offers and promotions happening at our local businesses, plus merchant profiles and other news around town.
Above all else, share your love!
Don't forget to share your photos and posts on social media and tag TDA and the businesses you love. You may find yourself in our awesome Instagram feed!
"The Love Local Gift Card program has brought many new customers to 1911 Smokehouse BBQ, something we really appreciate during these trying times. When you support small local businesses, you also support local jobs. More than 90 percent of our employees live locally, so dollars spent here are recirculated in the community."
