Save Local Now App Makes Supporting Local Business Easy http://yourhometownchagrinfalls.com/save-local-now-smart-phone-app-makes-supporting-local-business-easy/ http://yourhometownchagrinfalls.com/save-local-now-smart-phone-app-makes-supporting-local-business-easy/#comments Tue, 02 Sep 2014 16:03:12 +0000 http://yourhometownchagrinfalls.com/?p=17449800

Chagrin Falls residents,

As a 13-year resident of Chagrin Falls I understand the value of supporting our downtown businesses. Save Local Now, founded in 2011 and based right here in Chagrin Falls, was created to connect local businesses to local consumers. Save Local Now allows small businesses to digitally market themselves in the most efficient way possible: on the SLN app, on savelocalnow.com, and across all social media channels.

Unlike other services that require an email address to receive info on community events and local deals, Save Local Now allows you to browse, find and share local promotions created by our very own Chagrin Falls businesses.

Save Local Now has grown tremendously over the past three years, available now in more than 200 different markets. Locally, you can find Save Local Now in such places as Beachwood, Youngstown, Akron and of course, Chagrin Falls.

Your Hometown Chagrin Falls partnered with Save Local Now in 2012 to encourage residents to buy local. Downtown Chagrin Falls businesses are able to post deals and events on the Save Local Now platform, advertising to both Chagrin Falls residents and visitors alike. In fact, many Chagrin Falls businesses like Chuck’s Fine Wines, Fitness Together, and Arra Hair Salon & Spa are active on the Save Local Now platform, posting deals and events regularly.

To support our downtown Chagrin Falls businesses and to stay up-to-date on community events like Yoga by the Falls and the Sunday Chagrin Falls Farmers Market, download the Save Local Now app onto your iPhone or Android or visit savelocalnow.com.

 

Sincerely,

Keith LatoreKeith Latore

It’s hard to believe it’s already July!
 


Summer is in full swing in Chagrin Falls.   This Saturday, our popular Yoga by the Falls program meets for its third session this summer.   Why don’t you come out and join us?
There’s something special about Yoga by the Falls. Each event brings together people of all ages and abilities for an hour of free yoga in Triangle Park.  Local studio Chagrin Yoga provides a different teacher for each class, offering a sampler of teaching styles to those new to yoga and a chance to experience an outdoor class with your favorite teacher to the studio’s regular students.  Best of all, the energy in the park is always uplifting and fun;  who could resist a morning of 80 people (or more!) coming together to play in the park?
If you haven’t had a chance to check out this event, put the last four on your calendar.  After class, you can stroll through town,  do some local shopping or grab a coffee with a friend.  Bring a yoga mat or bath towel. For questions and more information, please call 440-247-1895.
 


  • July 5: Darcy Providente lead and Erin Cornell assist
  • July 19: Frank Alesci lead and Melanie Tessmer assist
  • August 2: Vishali Gupta lead and Kris Radzanowski assist
  • August 16 with Dawn Holst lead and Freia Ramsey assist

Greetings!

I’m sure that we would all agree that it is a good thing to have last winter behind us..ugh..what a LONG one it was. One thing you can count on is that besides Blossom Time the next SURE sign of spring is the opening of the Farmer’s Market in downtown Chagrin!! Your Hometown Chagrin Falls is pleased to be entering our seventh season of partnering with North Union to bring an award winning market to the village!

Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 1 and come down to town to welcome back the farmers, see the people you have missed all winter, and pick up the best plants, produce, meats, honey, pasta and baked goods! We will continue our popular “chef at the market” with Matt Anderson from Umami Asian Kitchen on June 29, and the team of Dave Apthorpe and Ian Thompson from Radius at South Franklin Circle on July 27 and September 28. These guys do a wonderful job of creating dishes from the best seasonal produce. So do not miss their appearances!!

Your Hometown Chagrin Falls spends many hours throughout the year fundraising in order to pay North Union Farmers Market to manage this quality event in Chagrin. We especially thank our current market sponsors; The Cleveland Clinic Chagrin Falls Family Health Center, Benesch Attorneys at Law, Chagrin Valley Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, First Federal Lakewood, South Franklin Circle, Harris Realty Company and Peppertree Capital Management for their support!

We hope you appreciate the market, the quality of life that it brings to our village, and the time and effort put forth in fundraising to make it happen!

Your HomeTown Chagrin Falls is proud to present the Chagrin Falls Historic Home and Garden Tour. The Walking Tour will take place on Friday, May 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturday, May 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Featured are five select historic homes and gardens, as well as one church all within walking distance of downtown Chagrin Falls. The tour will feature one home on Maple Street, one home plus the United Methodist Church on South Franklin Street, and three homes on East Washington Street highlighting the broad range of historic architecture within the Village of Chagrin Falls.

Earlier homes on the tour include an 1873 practical Italianate style home constructed by Village merchant James M. Gates, who operated his dry goods store on North Franklin Street in Chagrin Falls. Two years later, the local newspaper reported construction of the Italianate Philip Hintz House, who with his father operated a stove and tinware business on the southeast corner of Main and Bell Streets. Queen Anne style houses on the tour include the early Queen Anne home of George and Nellie Huggett constructed in 1889 and a later Queen Anne home constructed by local builders George and William Brewster in 1899. Also included is the house of important Village physician Dr. H. M. Doty, constructed in 1905. A special addition to the Tour this year is the Gothic Revival United Methodist Church built in 1885 by the Methodists, who were among the first settlers to arrive to Chagrin Falls in 1833.

Spend the day and experience the ambiance and style of these homes which are part of the important architectural heritage of the Village. There will be van transportation provided in the Village by The Cleveland Clinic, Hamlet Retirement Community and South Franklin Circle for those who need assistance. The Women’s Committee of the Chagrin Valley Little Theatre is serving its Famous Salad Luncheon Buffet on Friday, May 30 at Chagrin Valley Little Theatre, 40 River Street between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. For $15 enjoy salads, desserts and beverages.

Main Street daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and at the following locations until Thursday, May 29 at 5:00 p.m.: Timan Custom Window Treatments, Chagrin Card and Gifts; Chagrin Pet, Garden and Power Equipment; Fireside Book Shop; Village Herb Shop; Heinen’s in Bainbridge; Lowe’s Greenhouse, Breezewood Gardens, Petitti Garden Center or online below.
