Changing the Conversation About South Seattle, One Favorite at a Time

Changing the Conversation About South Seattle, One Favorite at a Time

Dear Readers,

You may have heard that the Rainier Valley Post has gotten out of the news business and is being reinvented as GO: South Seattle, a site designed to tell a story about this community through its most extraordinary people and places.

The new site will feature a robust business directory showcasing leading South Seattle businesses, a culture and lifestyle blog with neighborhood interviews and top 10 lists featuring area highlights. In addition, we’ll also have a secure online storefront – kind of a hyper-local Amazon marketplace where small business owners can sell their wares and readers can shop local from the comfort of their own home.

The goal is to help longtime residents stay current with a changing business and social climate, as well as newcomers in search of their new favorite restaurant, real estate agent, yoga studio and much more.

We’re looking to start the year with 75 new member businesses, in addition to the 25 founding members (see list below), for a total of the top 100 South Seattle businesses. (Interested? Contact us today!)

The new model acts a small business marketing collective, pooling the resources of our community’s leading companies and using our collective efforts to change the conversation about South Seattle from the inside out.

To that end, we’ve recently kicked-off a fun social media campaign called #SouthSeattleFaves, where we’re posting the faces of south-end neighbors with one of their favorite things about this great community.

Won’t you join us? What’s your #SouthSeattleFave? Share it using the comment form below, or visit our Facebook page.

Warmly,
Amber Campbell
