Support Downtown businesses, visit our pop-up window selfie station
In support of the Downtown Scranton Business District, Scranton Tomorrow will continue its #lovelocal social media campaign through March. The campaign is designed to encourage everyone to support independently-owned businesses this spring.
Small businesses play a vital role in the economy, locally and regionally, with Downtown Scranton’s Business District serving as the economic center of Northeastern Pennsylvania. With this in mind, the #lovelocal campaign encourages everyone to invest consumer dollars in their community by shopping and dining in Downtown Scranton. A newly-decorated selfie station on Linden Street makes it easy for visitors to show they appreciate all the amenities Downtown Scranton offers.

Design professionals at Posh, in partnership with Jeff D’Angelo’s Design Group, created a pop-up window display in the vacant storefronts of the Scranton Electric Building at 507 Linden Street. As part of the Northeast Art Project, Scranton artist Ryan Hnat painted festive shamrocks on the exterior of the window in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
Through March 31, visitors are encouraged to snap selfies in front of the display and post to social media using #lovelocal. Photos will be taken outdoors with the Pop-Up Window Display in the background, providing a safe, family-friendly experience for people of all ages.
To help plan their visit, members of the community can access comprehensive listings of all retailers and restaurants in the Downtown Scranton Shopping and Dining Guides. To accommodate a variety of shopping and dining preferences, Downtown businesses offer in-person services, online ordering, takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery.
Scranton Tomorrow’s #lovelocal campaign is made possible with the generous support of the Greater Scranton Board of Realtors, and the Northeast Art Project sponsored by The Lackawanna County Arts & Culture Department, and through a partnership with the property owner of the Scranton Electric Building.
