#ShopTheSqueeze - The City of Seattle recently launched Shop the Squeeze, a social media contest encouraging locals to post about their favorite Downtown small businesses and the alternative transportation options they use to visit them. Every week, winning posts will receive prizes like $100 pre-loaded ORCA cards and Visa gift cards. As transportation changes continue to affect the ways we get around our city, it's important that we keep supporting local venues and other businesses - and why not win some prizes while you're at it? To join the fun, follow @SeattleEconomy on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. For more information and full contest rules, visit
