Reports show that 30% of the Black-Owned Businesses in NYC alone disappeared in 5 years due to gentrification.
With the holidays upon us, we are maximizing our efforts to support Black businesses by creating a weekend for consumers to shop Black around the country.
Participants register via Eventbrite
Participating businesses are announced 11/6
Participants travel from business to business to complete holiday shopping
Participants must show the OBWS app on their phone to receive exclusive
specials & discounts
Participants who visit all businesses in their area will be entered to win a $700 gift card
Each business will have special offers & discounts only available to those who participate in the crawl
This is our chance to make an impact by giving back to our community & the small Black-owned businesses in them
