Shop Local This Season

I love the idea of shopping local but sometimes during the mad-rush of the Holidays getting sucked into buying corporate, lets be honest, is easier and less time consuming. But this holiday season Yelp.com is asking Tucsonans to take a pledge to shop locally and they're making it easy.

From Nov. 25 through Dec. 24, follow Tucson's Yelp.com and Twitter, #yelpshopstucson, for daily updates and recommendations of where to find interesting and unique gifts.

In addition to helping you, Yelp is also helping the community through several benefit events hosted throughout the month. Coming up Dec. 1 is their first dinner and drink soiree at MAST, 299 S Park Ave, which will benefit Local First Arizona .
Overall I think what Yelp is doing is a thoughtful way to celebrate the season and is very helpful, especially for people like me who wait till the last minute. This way you can find cool local merchants while also buying awesome gifts for friends and family.

The shopping season is upon us people...
