Only in Seattle Sunday shines a much-deserved spotlight on small businesses in Seattle neighborhoods by offering the public great shopping deals through partnerships with businesses in participating neighborhoods.
The next event will be held in the Chinatown/International District neighborhood on Saturday, November 24. Other upcoming Only in Seattle events will bring special offers to Pioneer Square businesses on Thursday, December 6 (in conjunction with Pioneer Square’s First Thursday), and to Georgetown on Sunday, December 30. This initiative is part of the City’s continued push to encourage discovery and exploration of neighborhoods in Seattle.
“Buying gifts or experiences locally during the holidays is a great way to support our neighborhood businesses,” said Mayor Mike McGinn. “I hope that people will explore and support the unique stores and restaurants that we’re featuring in the Only in Seattle campaign.”

The Office of Economic Development is excited to announce three partnerships to further the reach of the Only in Seattle marketing campaign.
In an effort to publicize the Only in Seattle initiative and promote local neighborhoods, CBS Radio Seattle (KMPS-FM, KZOK-FM, KJAQ-FM & KNFQ-AM) is proud to announce a partnership with BECU. CBS Radio Seattle is creating an interactive marketing program that encourages audiences to “find the hidden gems” in our area. The campaign will be featured on CBS Radio Seattle starting December 3. CBS Radio and BECU will also support local community events involving Only in Seattle.
Traveling on Virgin America during the holidays? Be sure to look for our Only in Seattle video segment on Virgin America flights coming in and out of Seattle on the RedHOT travel video series, which features the hottest, hippest and best in the airline’s destinations and reaches over 1 million airline passengers per show. The Only in Seattle video will be featured for five months, from November through March.
Though a partnership with Chinook Book, all Only in Seattle deals for Chinatown/International District, Pioneer Square, and Georgetown will be available to all Chinook Book mobile app users. While the printable day-pass from OnlyinSeattle.org is good for one day only, the Chinook Book app extends those great Only in Seattle deals for 30 days. The Only in Seattle Chinatown/International District Chinook Book deals are valid November 24 through December 24. A free version of the Chinook Book app is available through the App Store and Google Play.
For the past two years Only in Seattle has captured the essence of Seattle’s neighborhoods and shared the unique stories behind each of the featured businesses. With Only in Seattle Sundays the campaign’s “buy local” mission is brought to life beyond the Only in Seattle website, www.onlyinseattle.org, by inspiring people to take one day a month to discover and explore a new neighborhood or businesses they might not experience otherwise.
