It might sound a little early to already be thinking about holiday shopping, but the Economic and Community Development Institute (ECDI) is already hard at work to help connect local retailers with new customers.

CELEBRATE LOCAL TO STAY AT EASTON TOWN CENTER
“Celebrate Local, Shop the best of Ohio” opened on October 1, 2011 as a seasonal store showcasing the best of Ohio-produced goods, including locally-sourced foods, spirits and artisanal handcrafted products.
Followed with immense success and the overwhelming support of the local community, Celebrate Local will continue its stay at the Easton Town Center location into the summer.
Celebrate Local was born out of Easton Farmers Market to continue the desire to support small businesses with high quality, locally produced goods from the state of Ohio. There are currently more than 170 vendors with many earning awards on both the local and national levels. More than 25 Easton Farmers Market vendors are currently represented in the non-profit store.

I was hoping this would happen! I did much of my holiday shopping there and could see coming back throughout the year. They make it so much easier to find Ohio-produced items and gifts.January 18, 2012 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #470614
I think this would be a big hit in the Short North.January 18, 2012 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #470615
I think this would be a big hit in the Short North.
I’m thinking it could be even better in the right location Downtown. A nice “destination” type of retal space.January 18, 2012 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #470616

Actually, yes to either Downtown or the Short North. Though, confession, I was still willing to face the mess that is Easton just for this store…January 18, 2012 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #470618

Buying local isn’t an urban thing only!
The Easton one must be doing well. I think having two would be good, the downtown one would probably be good near the convention center to hit up visitors.January 18, 2012 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #470620January 18, 2012 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #470621
No one said it was.
Agreed. Indicated by the success of the suburban location at Easton.
I like the idea of multiple locations. There’s definitely a growing population willing to shop local. Count me in.January 19, 2012 12:48 pm at 12:48 pm #470622

This is Connie, in charge of retail operations at Celebrate Local, and Director of Global Gallery, one of the Celebrate Local partners. We would LOVE to expand into a downtown location, and it has been a part of the discussion since we opened at Easton. We happen to have a pretty amazing benefit with Easton – free rent! The leadership at Easton is very forward thinking in this aspect – helping the non-profit project get off the ground through this generous partnership and donation. We would welcome a similar offer from a downtown landowner/real estate developer. In the meantime, we are developing “Celebrate Local” sections in the Global Gallery in the Short North and in Clintonville – so check out our offerings at these two locations. Want to have a Celebrate Local section in your store? Send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll see how we can help!February 7, 2013 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #470623
Set to reopen in their new spot on Friday:
