High 5 Pie
What year did you open on Capitol Hill: New Year’s Day 2011!
Tell us about your your business: High 5 Pie grew out of founder Dani Cone’s love of eating pie with a cup of coffee. Using Grandma Molly’s favorite all-butter pie crust recipe, we create both classic and innovative sweet and savory fillings. High 5 Pies are a perfect blend of old fashioned goodness with some exciting seasonal offerings to satisfy the most modern cravings.
What is the best thing about having a business on Capitol Hill? Living and working in the same neighborhood and serving our own communities!
Why is it important for people to shop local, especially around the holidays? Shopping local keeps everyone connected to each other and allows businesses to best serve the needs and desires of their neighbors and friends. Sharing your favorite neighborhood finds with loved ones is a great way to share a slice of your daily life for the holidays.
CHS has been supporting Shop the Hill for years now. It started as a mostly last-minute response by a few Capitol Hill shops to the wave of “small and local” holiday shopping promotions from champions of “small business” like American Express and Bank of America. Even University Village is in the game this year. Shop the Hill finally got its act together a little more seriously when the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce got involved two years ago. It is still 100% free for Capitol Hill businesses to be part of. And businesses are still welcome to cut up and modify the posters we print ever year to customize the message and dates of the promotion. I still see the posters from 2012 in use around the neighborhood here and there.
Promotions and messages from local merchants are already being added to capitolhillseattle.com/shopthehill/ along with some business profiles provided this year by the chamber. The grassroots “small and local” shopping guide will continue throughout the holidays but the big focus for Shop the Hill is the weekend after Thanksgiving starting November 28th:
Shoppers will receive deep discounts and great giveaways at local retailers on Friday, November 28th through Sunday, November 30th. Find what makes Capitol Hill great – unique, unusual and hip offerings. With more than 60 independent businesses expected to participate, the neighborhood is bound to be a mecca for holiday shoppers. Whether hunting for a one-of-a-kind gift for a loved one—or a cherished item for oneself—everyone is bound to find some treat to get them in the spirit.
The roster for this year’s planned promotions for the weekend are below. You’ll find the flyers at stores throughout the area next week. If you’re staying in town for the holiday, consider heading out for a deal or two and a chance to check out some favorites old and new. UPDATE: We’ve also added some Shop the Hill fun lined up for bars and restaurants in the area. Continue reading
