Our cute, fiberglass piggy banks are part of our new “Shop, Dine, Play” initiative to encourage residents to shop within city limits of Vestavia Hills.
One pig “lives” outside the Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce office, and the other three rotate between city businesses. Each pig is connected to a genre of business – one for shopping, one for dining and one for entertainment.
Our hope is that people will connect the piggy banks with the idea of investing in the city.
If you find a pig, share a pig! Snap a selfie with the piggy bank and share it using #VHPigs for a chance to be featured on our website.
The shopkeepers of Vestavia Hills believe shopping should always be a fun, personable experience. That's why they like to know your name, your style and your favorite color. We take shopping outside the big box and into specialty stores with specialty service. So when you shop Vestavia Hills, you can have fun, be yourself, and always make a fashion statement all your own.
So when you hear someone say, I wish we had a shop where I could buy "XYZ"......encourage them to check out the Chamber website to see what unique shops we have here. Also the ease of access to our businesses can't be beat. Where else can you "drive up to the front door" when you want to pick up a quick bite to eat, or a unique birthday present, a gift for that special someone or purchase that special outfit for a night out on the town. We think you will be pleasantly surprised to see the wonderful businesses we have in our community if you will proactively “shop local” when you are making a purchase. After all, the sales tax collected goes right back into our city and schools to make Vestavia Hills the best it can be!
