You can help Brentwood’s community and economy in a very important way by choosing to support local retailers - whenever you fill a gas tank, buy a gift for the holidays, or buy the week’s groceries.

  • Sales tax from local shops provides an important source of tax revenue for police, parks & recreational, and other city services.

  • Local retailers provide the #1 source of jobs for our community.  In particular, many teenagers get their first start in the working world, and learn important lessons associated with employment, thanks to local retailers.

  • Local shops can increase property values in the surrounding neighborhood, provide meeting places that bring neighbors together, and help give the neighborhood a unique identity.

  • Brentwood has more than 1.7 million square feet of local retail – the largest amount in the East Contra Costa region – so that you can find almost any category of product and service within Brentwood city limits.
