Hasbrouck Heights Education Association holds their second annual Holiday Shop Mob!!!
Every single day the members of the Hasbrouck Heights Education Association shop at local businesses. This year, they will extend Small Business Saturday on November 28, 2015 and make it a week long SHOP MOB in December.
Every day during the week of December 14th, the association will have a different theme for their members to shop and buy local merchandise. Members will wear their HHEA Local Pride shirts to showcase who is a member. Plus, every time they spend money, they will hand the merchant an HHEA business card to let them know we support them during this holiday season.
The schedule for our HHEA members to visit family-run businesses in the area is as follows:
December 14th: Lunch Out! Members will purchase lunch at local Heights food establishments like Heights Pizza, Lovey’s or Sub works.
December 15th: Shop the Boulevard! On this day, members will walk up and down the main street in Hasbrouck Heights to purchase items from local gift shops. Examples would be The Heights Flower Shoppe, Bill O’Shea’s Florist, or Kim’s Nails.
December 16th: Grocery Shop at Shop Rite (Inserra) in Lodi. Members will purchase their holiday groceries as well as DONATE food to the Hasbrouck Heights Food Bank.
December 17th: Dinner out! Members will purchase gift cards or eat at local Heights restaurants like Sophia’s, Risotto House or Tom Yum Koong Tai Kitchen.
December 18th: Local “APPY HOURS” at local establishments, like Houlihan’s, Heights Bar & Grill and Heights Beer & Wine Emporium.
The purpose of the HHEA SHOP MOB is to bring awareness to the economic contributions that middle class teachers bring to the communities they work in. Policies that hurt middle class wage-earners, disguised as laws to help small business, actually do the opposite. When wages are suppressed, then so is spending power. When the middle class does better, we all do better! We invite the public to join us and SHOP LOCAL!
