Shop Small online adds up to Big Things. The coronavirus and our state’s wildfires have upended daily life in Oregon, with travel and tourism being the hardest-hit industries. Small businesses have been crippled and are counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.
America Runs on Small Businesses and small businesses are the retail backbone of our communities and our economy. Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting thousands of small businesses and encouraging shoppers to think small.
Of course, we’d love to have you stay with us, let us provide some of the best hospitality Oregon has to offer, eat a home-cooked meals and get the inside scoop to the area’s best attractions and shopping. But if traveling isn’t in your plans just now and you need some sweet gifts, or something for yourself, we asked our Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild innkeepers to share a few local stores that have an online option so as to extend a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.
In the Upper Hood River Valley on the north slope of Oregon’s tallest peak, Mt. Hood, is the Old Parkdale Inn, a B&B in the quaint town of Parkdale. Much of Hood River’s Bounty is utilized at the Inn.
While online you might consider purchasing a gift certificate for a stay at Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakast, either for yourself when you’re ready to travel again, or as a thoughtful gift.

Moby Coffee Roasters: Roasted around the corner and enjoyed at the Old Parkdale Inn. Perhaps a gift of a monthly subscription? Brew and enjoy at home
