Shop Small in NoMa DC this Holiday Season

At 2M Street Apartments, our residents have a fantastic opportunity to give back to the NoMa neighborhood. #ShopSmall is a country-wide initiative created to help bring awareness to local businesses. As our residents know, small businesses are the lifeblood of any neighborhood; they infuse personality into the community, creating an easy pathway for us to form genuine relationships with local business owners as well as our neighbors. NoMa, DC is no different! We can help support some of the greatest small businesses DC has to offer.

When we make a proactive effort to give back to our NoMa community, we’re showing that we care about the continued growth of the neighborhood we all love! We are also committing to bringing ourselves closer together as a community. And during these uncertain times, we can all use that feeling of community in our hearts.

With the Holiday season being among us, there is no better time to get out and show the NoMa community that we care about its longevity! The most significant gift you can give to small businesses to show your support!

Below is a list of some great NoMa businesses you can easily support this Holiday season!

And as a bonus, when you stop by one of these NoMa businesses, you can pick up either a FREE “Wear A Mask” poster, or a NoMa DC face mask to help spread awareness of the universal initiative to stay safe.
