Anaheim, Calif. (Nov. 9, 2020) – ANAHEI’M FIRST is launching a free digital platform today featuring customized discounts from local restaurants, breweries, and other small businesses encouraging residents and Anaheim visitors to shop local. The program serves as a way for residents to get exclusive deals and specials in one place while supporting local businesses during this tumultuous time.
“Anaheim restaurants, breweries, and small retail businesses continue to struggle to survive amid the COVID-19 pandemic and state restrictions,” said Todd Ament, Anaheim Chamber of Commerce President & CEO. “These locally owned and operated businesses are the foundation of what makes Anaheim one of the most desirable places to live and visit. We want to remind residents that these businesses are still open, while giving them a great incentive to support a beloved neighborhood favorite or enjoy a new venue. Supporting our local businesses provides Anaheim a sustainable economy preserving local businesses, creating jobs and keeps dollars in our community.”
First launching with dine and drink specials, deals on the “ANAHEI’M FIRST Dine, Drink and Shop” program will share new offers often and will include deals like 2-for-1 glasses of wine, a complimentary appetizer with purchase of an entrée, kids eat free and dozens of other unique promotions. Local favorites showcased include Anaheim White House, Anaheim Brewery and Craftsman Pizza as well as restaurants inside the Anaheim Packing District.
“For generations, we’ve seen the same families come to dine at Mama Cozza’s,” said Frank Cozza, owner of Mama Cozza’s. “The difficulties of this year are more than financial, but also result in missing those connections we had inside our restaurant every night. With this program, we hope to bolster our revenue, but more importantly, offer a little something to the community that has supported us throughout the years.”
“ANAHEI’M FIRST Dine, Drink and Shop” is available at no cost. It is available in seven languages and can be joined at Deals.AnaheimFirst.com starting today. Users are invited to choose from a variety of deals from local businesses throughout Anaheim. The “shop” arm of the program is already being built and scheduled to launch this winter with exciting promotions.
ANAHEI’M FIRST Dine, Drink and Shop is a collaboration between Visit Anaheim and the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Anaheim. The initiative hopes to support local businesses during an unprecedently difficult time through offering special savings and periodic giveaways to its users.
