The Valencia Corridor is the longest stretch of independent retail in the US, and it’s extremely important that we all do our part to help our neighbors thrive this holiday season. Our area is a destination catered to those who want to support small businesses, while purchasing truly unique products from local brands. Nothing against your local shopping mall but the Valencia Corridor is totally different in the sense that the dollars spent here go directly toward the local economy. And to us, that’s both necessary and dope!
There are so many amazing businesses along Valencia Street and it's important that they're there for us when we need them. So this year (and into the new year), let's give back by supporting our local small businesses.
The next time you’re visiting the State Of Flux Shop, make sure you check out some of these neighboring small businesses we frequent below:
