Shop Local program

Attention Local
Business Owners!

If you are a local business owner, you are invited to join in a community-wide effort designed to educate Pasadena residents about the importance of patronizing local businesses – especially the businesses that continually contribute products or services to local non-profit organizations such as schools, churches, sports teams, etc.

Our Mission

  1. Educate Pasadena residents about the importance of shopping local.
  2. Create awareness and drive traffi c to participating merchants through a unique joint business initiative and multi-media blitz.
  3. Offer consumers special discount programs, promotions, and prizes through ongoing shop local contests.
  4. Provide monetary awards to designated local non-profits.
  5. Initiate a joint community effort to establish a strong local economy.

If you own or operate a local business and are interested in making Pasadena a better place to live and work - a place where residents patronize local businesses and work together with the business community to create a healthy, robust local economy - contact Getta Mullaney, 410-360-6026.

Pasadena Maryland is a great place to live, work and play. Located in Anne Arundel County in Central Maryland, on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, Pasadena is a fantastic place for businesses to grow. Washington D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis are just minutes away on some of the best highways in the country. Baltimore Washington International airport (BWI) sits on the our western boundary. Travel and freight by rail and sea are also just minutes away with both Am-Trak and CSX rail serving the area and sea shipping and passenger cruises in and out from the Port of Baltimore.

Recreation opportunities are as abundant and varied as the imagination. Water sports are great on the Chesapeake Bay and the near by Atlantic Ocean. Annapolis claims the title of sailing capitol of the world and some of the biggest fishing tournaments are held just hours away in Ocean City Maryland. Ocean City is also a great family vacation spot. Western Maryland offers summer time lakes and mountain hiking and a number of locations for winter sports like skiing. Central Maryland is also horse country with a thriving horse industry and all levels of competition from beginner to nationally famous events like the Preakness!
