Mayor Quan Encouraging Local Shopping


Mayor Jean Quan visited Lakeshore to do some holiday shopping and encourage others to Shop Oakland.



Silver Moon Kids was Mayor Quan’s first stop where she purchased several items for her family.



 Urban Indigo on Lakeshore had some Oakland-branded items that caught the Mayor’s eye.



All that shopping builds a big appetite. Next stop: Arizmendi to get salad, pizza and baked goods for her staff and herself.



Karen King, Chair of Oakland Merchants Leadership Forum and owner of Karen’s Flowers explains the importance of shopping local.


Erin Kilmer Neal of Sustainable Business Alliance and Oakland Grown discusses the local Oakland Gift Card that helps sustain the local economic community.
