Love Oly Shop & Dine Week
The Olympia Downtown Alliance will highlight the importance of small business shopping Sept. 28 through Oct. 4 during Love Oly Shop & Dine Week. Community members can fill their “passports” with “Love Oly” stickers with every $10 purchase from a participating downtown business. Once an attendee has accrued five stickers, they can redeem it for a “Love Oly” face mask, hat, or bumper sticker, plus a chance to win gift certificates to local businesses. See participating businesses on the Olympia Downtown Alliance web page.
