The Olympia Downtown Alliance created the Love Oly Shop & Dine Week in 2020 to bring more business to restaurants and shops during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Following the success of the Love Oly event last September, and the Love Oly Shop & Dine campaign during Downtown for the Holidays, Love Oly is back this Spring!

“We have an amazing sense of community in downtown Olympia,” said Todd Cutts, Executive Director of the Olympia Downtown Alliance. “So many community members want to continue to help downtown businesses. We were so pleased with the participation and success of the previous Love Oly events, and are thrilled to bring it back this Spring.”

Love Oly runs May 24 through May 31, 2021. Customers may pick up a "Passport" from participating businesses or access and print one from the Alliance website. During the week of the promotion, when a customer purchases an item valued at $10 or more from a participating business, a “Love Oly” sticker will be affixed to their “Passport.” Once the customer has 5 stickers affixed to the “Passport,” they can redeem it for their choice of a “Love Oly” mug, drawstring backpack, or bottle opener. They will also be entered to win gift certificates to participating businesses. To date, over 70 downtown businesses are registered to participate in the week-long event.

Thank you to Timberland Bank, our presenting sponsor.
