Shop local or online for Route 66!
With the Christmas season upon us, and so many businesses clamoring for our gifting dollars, I would like to shout out for all the Route 66 businesses who deserve to be supported with our Christmas shopping. Winter is the off-season for Route 66, so for many small businesses on the Route, getting a sales boost in December is a great help to get through this down period for visitors.
If you live near Route 66, I encourage you to head down to one of your local Route 66 businesses to see what they have on offer for your gift-giving. And if you don't live near Route 66, there is still a way you can help! Listed below are many Route 66 businesses and attractions that you can support through their online stores. Spread that Christmas cheer around and get some cool & unique Route 66 gifts for your loved ones! If you know of another Route 66 store with online shopping that you think should be included, email me and I will add it to the list!
Sites shown in green are friends of Electric Route 66 - we've visited these fine folks!
But wait, there's more!
One more way you can support Route 66 with online shopping is by linking your Amazon account to a Route 66-based charity. Visit smile.amazon.com to select a charity from their extensive list of non-profits, and a percentage of every purchase will be donated to that charity. There are many Route 66 non-profits on the list!
