Simple. Fresh. Local.

Connect to Harrisonburg.

Most of us know the merits of doing business locally, and most of us know that Harrisonburg has an absolutely fantastic set of local businesses for us to patronize. That's why we started The DL: to make the connection between you and your local businesses more seamless. Use the business directory to look up hours, location, and menus or check out local events every single day on our calendar; all of Harrisonburg's events in one place – beautiful. We have tons more in store for the next few weeks, and here's the best way you can get involved...


Here's how it works:

Basically, we want to connect people to local businesses – simplifying things to make that connection easy – and give them some incentive to get out there and support the community. Here's a quick overview of how we connect people.

1. Subscribe.

Enter your name and email, and you're on your way. It's a totally free service, and you're welcome to unsubscribe at any time with one single tiny click.

2. Get updates + awesome stuff.

We send emails out on Mondays and Thursdays. In said emails, you'll find exclusive deals that will only last a few days, giveaways just about every week, event announcements, and anything else that we think might help make your life easier.

The deals you get in the emails are only good for a few days. So say you get an email on Monday – you have until Wednesday at closing time to cash in on it. On Thurday morning, you'll find a whole new set of deals in your inbox, and these are good all weekend, until closing time on Sunday.

3. Get out there!

Check our website for events, look up businesses, view menus, find deals – then GET OUT THERE and discover Harrisonburg!


The perfect system.

A win-win situation.

Customers want to save money, and businesses want a way to get people in the door. By shouldering a bit of the marketing burden for local businesses, we give them more time to do what they do best. And, of course, we pass the sweet, sweet savings on to you.

Why rotate the coupons every 3-4 days?

Variety is the spice of life, as they say. Offering deals that only last a few days means that the businesses that provide these deals can afford to offer a much larger variety of them. This way, if there's a coupon you don't think you'll use, all you have to do is wait until the weekend for another completely new set of awesome deals.

Further, a lot of businesses offer deals for so long, that they become the standard price. Deals, by nature, are short lived. So a "deal" that lasts two or three months is just a clever re-pricing of a product. We are making sure that you get honest-to-goodness deals on things that 90% of the time would otherwise be costing you more money. Now, how cool is that?
