Burbank is full of really wonderful small businesses and you can show your community support by shopping the local, independently owned businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods throughout our city.
If you are looking for a neighborhood full of great small businesses, look no further than Magnolia Park. From restaurants to gifts to jewelry and clothing, the Magnolia Park shopping district is full of really options for holiday shopping. And don’t limit yourself to just the stores on Magnolia, there’s fantastic comic book stores, hobby shops and so much more throughout area offering really unique gifts ideas. My kids are huge fans of the comic book store, Blast From the Past, on Hollywood Way (next to the Rite Aid). They have a HUGE collection of out-of-the-box Star Wars action figures at a fraction of the cost new. Since kids are quick to rip them out of the packages anyway, why pay from the bit of cardboard and plastic that will be thrown in the trash. After checking out all of the store’s great collectables, reasonably priced comic books and fun t-shirts, ask the employees about the box of Star Wars action figures behind the cash register and they will hook you up!
Don’t forget…shop small in Burbank this Saturday!
