Support Local Retail

Shop Small = Big Impact

When you shop small, your money helps your friends, family and neighbors because more of it stays in the local economy. It also helps you avoid the same old big box stuff you can get anywhere.

Looking for gift cards? A gift card to a downtown eatery or downtown shop supports the restaurant or shop and gives the gift recipient the opportunity for a great experience. 


The Akronite App logoSupport downtown businesses and earn EXTRA back in Blimps on the #Akronite app. Your Blimps can then be used for purchases at your favorite downtown Akron locales. 

Download the app, link your card, and start earning blimps today! Make every action count.
