Mayor Gavin Newsom announced Thursday the City will bring back Shop SF for the holiday season. Being called Shop SF, Get More, the program offers special discounts and promotions exclusively for residents of the nine Bay Area counties until January 2010. It’s mean to help stimulate the local economy.
“Shop SF, Get More was a great shot in the arm for our small businesseslast year,” Newsom said in a statement. “This year, we are bringing it back to showcase our world-class dining, museums, events, attractions and hotels. Whether it's shopping in Union Square or touring our diverse neighborhoods, there's something for everyone.”
Among the shopping incentives offered under the program, Muni transfers will be good all day on Sundays from Nov. 15 to Dec. 27. Usually transfers are valid for only 90 minutes. Hotels will offer discounts under the program, as well as restaurants and museums.
