This Campaign is all about supporting our local small businesses. We challenge you to commit to making small changes in how and where you shop, dine, or use services. It is a challenge to everyone living in and around the greater Bixby Knolls area.
Commit to changing at least ONE thing in your life that you currently purchase or use outside the district. Challenge yourself to instead find a Bixby Knolls merchant to meet your needs rather than outside the area. For example, get your nails done somewhere else? Find a nail salon in Bixby Knolls and give it a try!
There are goods and services to discover right here and we encourage you to do so. We want you to get out and share with your friends and neighbors the great things you can find in the district. And then tell the rest of the community when you do make those discoveries!
Again, this campaign is not a challenge to change your whole life, but a commitment to changing at least ONE service or goods purchase to here in the Knolls.
According to “Civic Economics: A National Summary Report,” for every $100 spent at locally owned small businesses and retailers, $48 will stay in the local economy. That is 48% of YOUR MONEY staying right here in YOUR COMMUNITY. Shopping local means more than running errands. It is supporting your neighborhood, your community, and your city. It was also reported by the Institute For Local Self-Reliance that supporting “locally owned businesses built strong communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships.”
By supporting the businesses in Bixby Knolls, you are continuing to support positive change in the community. The neighborhood continues to be vibrant, your property values rise, and the ultimate sense of community pride continues to strive to be the highest in the city.

When pizza is delivered by Porky’s, when you get your hair styled at Goldhill Salon, when you get your bike tuned up at Long Beach Cyclery, when you get a massage from Urban Escape Spa, when you stop in for a cocktail at Rocks – TELL THE WORLD ABOUT IT! We want to see what you have discovered.
