Shopping local is always a good idea—and this year, more than ever, it’s essential to the communities where we live. Reinhold Residential recognizes the value small businesses bring to our local, state, and national economies—they infuse our neighborhoods with diversity and vibrancy and keep our communities bustling and growing. But after the challenges of 2020, many are in trouble and may not be able to weather the challenges this winter will bring.
Reinhold’s apartment residents can help support local stores and businesses. We encourage all of our residents to shop “small” this holiday season. Avoid the big box stores and keep your holiday dollars right here in our communities! Here are just a few of the great shops, near Reinhold’s Philadelphia apartment buildings, where you can find one-of-a-kind gifts, all while giving back to small businesses:
