Discussion: What Local Sacramento Businesses Would You Miss?
By Becky Warren
My good friend in San Diego told me about this really cool project – the 3/50 Project (www.the350project.net/home.html) – which asks the simple question: What three locally owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared?
The 3/50 Project is simple:
3: Stop in and visit your three favorite locally owned businesses.
50: Spent at least $50 a month in locally owned businesses.
That got me to thinking, which Sacramento businesses would I miss the most?
This question made me realize that there are a lot of restaurants, stores and boutiques that I always intend on checking out but rarely take the time to do it. Local and independent businesses are an important part of our community’s character and culture. I remember a few years ago when Sacramento only had a few restaurants to go to after work – and now Midtown is jumping.
For me, the three I think that I would miss the most are: Taylor’s Market, Mikuni Sushi and Freeport Bakery. What do you think? What are your favorite businesses that you would miss the most?
