Shop San Gabriel

The holidays are here, which means we have arrived at the busiest shopping season of the year. When shopping for the perfect gift, you don't have to go far. There are plenty of places to get something for everyone on your list right in San Gabriel.

Research shows that for every $100 spent at a locally owned business, more than $45 stays in the local economy, creating jobs and expanding the city’s tax base.
