Welcome to Gift Rochester!

About Gift Rochester

Gift Rochester is an e-commerce pop-up shop developed out of a commitment to support our local economy with the intent to help area businesses through hard times.  In an effort to do our small part, we created this platform to make it convenient to shop from many local retailers from a single source.

Over $260,000 Gifts Sold!

Gift Rochester’s inaugural edition proved a success by partnering with 8 local businesses, fulfilling 120 orders, and putting $8,000 into the hands of local entrepreneurs back in April. In an effort to continue supporting local businesses, Gift Rochester curated a private online pop-up local shopping experience for Mayo Clinic to recognize their staff this holiday season with a gift from one of the 50 downtown businesses represented. Gift Rochester is excited to announce that Mayo Clinic purchased $257,786.95 in merchandise from businesses in downtown Rochester.

 

Future iterations of Gift Rochester are still in the early stages. Follow Gift Rochester on Instagram and Facebook for updates on upcoming programs and other ways to support local.
