What is the BE LOCAL Pass and how can you use it?

November 30, 2023

In the spirit of community support and holiday cheer, the Lake Oswego & West Linn Business Recovery Center is once again buzzing with excitement as the BE LOCAL Holiday Passport makes a triumphant return for its second year.

This free, mobile-exclusive savings pass is not just a ticket to discounts and deals; it's a powerful way for you to support and uplift local businesses and come together with others in your local community to get in the festive spirit.

Getting Your Pass: Easy, Quick, and Best of All… Free!

The process is truly as easy as 1-2-3. First, you can acquire your BE LOCAL Pass, a wonderfully curated collection of attractions, retailers, and restaurants offering exclusive deals, by visiting this page to get started. The pass is not only free, but also comes without the hassle of downloading an app; it all lives right in your web browser on your phone (Safari, Chrome, etc).

You’ll receive a quick link sent via text and email to ensure that your pass is instantly accessible again and again. Once you have your pass, it's ready to use immediately. Save it to your phone's home screen for convenient one-tap access, too.

Redeem, Rejoice, Repeat

Visiting a participating local business is really where the magic happens... Ready to rock n’ roll with your BE LOCAL Pass in hand, all you have to do is simply present your phone to the staff, unlocking discounts, deals, and special offers upon checkout. The more you explore and check in, the more you save—a win-win scenario that encourages you to shop small and make a big impact on the local economy.

Why Should You Participate?

The BE LOCAL Pass isn't just a money-saving tool; it's a community-building initiative that YOU can play a big role in supporting. By actively engaging with local businesses, we all play a pivotal role in sustaining the vibrancy and uniqueness of our community. Explore the diverse offerings of Lake Oswego and West Linn, foster a sense of togetherness with others in your community, and get festive!

Shop Small, Make a HUGE Difference!

As the holiday season continues to unfold, the BE LOCAL Pass encourages you to embrace shopping small for a monumental impact. The participating locations are truly the heartbeat of our community and every purchase, every check-in, like and share online, or simple word of mouth support, contributes to the resilience and prosperity of these small businesses.

The BE LOCAL Holiday Passport is an invitation to participate actively in the community. Grab your free pass, discover some new local businesses, and share your experiences on social media using #BeLocal. Let this holiday season be a testament to the strength of community bonds and the collective impact of supporting and shopping local! This holiday season, let's come together, celebrate local businesses, and make a lasting impact by choosing to #BeLocal.
