standard What Is This Sticker Doing Everywhere!?

Over the coming days and weeks you might start to see this sticker posted around some of your favorite places in Ningbo. You might then wonder what it is.

local and proudLet us explain.

This city has come a long way since Ningbo Guide got started. Some of you who’ve been here a while will remember when Starbucks was one of the only places to get a decent cup of coffee, or when Pizza Hut was your best bet for for a slice. But times have changed.

If you flip through the pages of a city magazine or just take a stroll around Ningbo, you’ll see them everywhere now. Small local businesses. The lifeblood of a city. We love them, and we know that you love them too. It’s time to show that love to everyone, and with this sticker, that’s what we’re doing.

When you see this sticker, it means that someone put it all on the line to try and bring something new to this city. Maybe they put their life’s savings into it. Maybe they took out a huge loan. They almost certainly put countless hours of work and sleepless nights into it. Ningbo is a better place because of these people and the places they’ve put their hearts and souls into.

This city–our city–is constantly evolving. The good news is you get to help decide where it goes next! You do that with your wallet. When you spend your hard-earned cash at a place with this sticker, you can rest assured knowing that that money is staying right here in Ningbo and not going into some huge corporate account overseas. It’s helping to build something even better, something even more vibrant and diverse. And when you’re walking around this city in the future, marveling at just how far it’s come over the years, you’ll know that you’ve been part of that. And you can be proud.

Local and proud.

最近一段时间,你们将可能在很多你们喜欢的地方看到这个贴纸,可能也会猜想它到底是关于什么的?

让我们来为你解开谜团。

十年前,Ningbo Guide杂志和网站成立。十年间,宁波有了质的改变。“老宁波”们可能还记得,几年前星巴克咖啡是你唯一的选择,或者当你想吃披萨的时候,选择也仅限于必胜客。如今,一切都变了。

如果你随意翻阅几本城市杂志或在宁波到处走走,你会发现,他们无处不在——小型本地企业和商家(或称之民营企业)。这个不断为城市注入新鲜血液的个体们。我们爱他们,相信你也爱他们。是时候让他们知道你关爱他们的存在了,这个贴纸也正是表达我们对民营企业的关爱。

当你看到这张贴纸的时候,意味着有人为这个城市注入新的元素时付出很多,贷款、甚至倾其所有。长时间的工作甚至熬夜。宁波因为这些私营企业变得更加多元化。

这座城市——我们的城市,一直在发展。对我们来说,每个人都可以决定在某一方面为这个城市的发展出一份力,这是个好消息!在哪儿消费由你决定。当你在一家贴着这张贴纸的商家消费的时候,你就知道,你辛苦挣来的钱将在宁波流通,而不是流入某个大型国际公司的海外账户。它在为发展出一份力,也在为构建更加生机勃勃、更多样化的都市生活出一份力。在未来,你漫步在这座城市,感受着这几年来这个城市的发展,你将知道,这其中也有你的功劳。你可以为自己感到骄傲。

支持本地企业,且以此为荣!
