Astoria residents will have the chance to receive a tote bag filled with goodies if they shop at eight or more local stores in the neighborhood this week.
The giveaway is part of a spring “shopping crawl” hosted by the organization Shop Small Astoria.
The crawl, which began today, encourages residents to shop at local mom-and-pops either in person or online. More than a dozen businesses throughout the neighborhood are joining in the crawl.
Participants have until Sunday, May 2 to shop at the 18 participating stores. To earn a goody bag, they must shop at at least eight of the 18 stores and submit proof of purchase — either a receipt or screenshot — by email to [email protected]
Those who hit eight or more stores will get a “Thank You for shopping Astoria” tote bag filled with goodies. The bags will be available for pick up at The Brass Owl, located at 36-19 Ditmars Blvd.
