Chicken and the Tulips Antiques & More is full of hidden treasures. Visiting this shop is a gift. So much to see and love. There is something for everyone on your Valentine’s Day list. Take home a one-of-a-kind piece and treat your love with a gift she will treasure forever. Fine antiques, period pieces, reinvented, rustic and more. Come have fun shopping.
The best way to show love on Valentine’s Day is to shop local. With each purchase, you will be giving back to your community while sharing love with your sweetheart. The Pleasanton Express loves and appreciates our advertisers. Every week we create a 1/4 page ad to thank each and every advertiser from the week prior that made the current issue possible. This Valentine’s Day we are gifting some of our retail The Buzz advertisers by showcasing their Valentine’s Day specials.
The businesses featured in the Pleasanton Express are the most trusted in town. You know who they are if you have ever asked them to donate money or goods for a charity event or to support one of your local organizations. According to Small Business Association, small businesses donate 250 percent more than larger businesses to local nonprofits and community causes.
Data shows that local retailers return 52 percent of their revenue back into the local economy, compared to just 14 percent for national chain retailers. In contrast to the benefits provided by shopping locally, shopping at online places such as Amazon actually detracts from the economic potential provided by local businesses. Zero percent of your purchase from Amazon goes back into the community. So, let’s give these businesses and our other advertisers featured through the Pleasanton Express a Valentine’s Day present by shopping local! For contact info for each of these businesses, please look on pages 12A and 13A which feature The Buzz, a weekly guide to shopping services and special offers around town.
