City Launches "Show Us How You Shop Phoenix!"

Sept. 14, 2012 The City of Phoenix is launching its annual “Shop Phoenix!” campaign, asking residents to “Show Us How You Shop Phoenix!” Ready to bite into a burger from your favorite Phoenix restaurant, just purchased a new car or getting starting on holiday shopping? Photograph the moment at your favorite restaurant, auto dealership, local business or mall, tell us where you like to “Shop Phoenix!” and email us the photo. Through the end of December, residents can “Show Us How You Shop Phoenix!” by submitting photos of places to shop, eat or visit in Phoenix. Send photos as an attachment to with “Shop Phoenix!” in the subject line. Photos will be featured in a photo album on the city’s Facebook page, and the top photo each week will be the city’s Facebook cover photo. Sales taxes on the merchandise purchased at businesses in Phoenix go directly to the city’s General Fund, which pays for city services such as police and fire protection, parks, libraries, senior centers, neighborhood preservation, neighborhood clean up and street maintenance. The largest revenue component for funding our city’s basic services is sales tax, it accounts for 39 percent of General Fund revenues. By shopping in Phoenix, residents have a direct impact to support the city services they enjoy. To view “Show Us How You Shop Phoenix!” photos, like the city’s Facebook page at and go to the “Shop Phoenix!” photo album. Media Contact: Toni Maccarone 602-495-5901
