Guam - Get your holiday shopping off on the right foot with the Guam Visitors Bureau's Shop Guam event.

The third annual Shop Guam Festival will kick off with an in-store event at the Agana Shopping Center this Saturday. GVB spokesperson Josh Tyquiengco said, "We're going to be featuring a fashion show, there's going to be cultural entertainment, food and other activities for the family." The show will feature selections from Etcetera Boutique and Chamorrita Swimwear, two of over 120 different vendors that will be featured at the Shop Guam Festival.

But beyond the food and fun, Tyquiengco emphasizes the event is also about supporting local vendors.  "It's one way to invest in our projects here and also showcase all the products that we have to our visitors as well and it stimulates growth in the economy as well," he explained.

One way to do this is to use GVB's new app that can aid socially-conscious consumers when looking for local vendors. "Basically you can pull up all the different offers and it has a feature that if there's a Shop Guam vender close to you it'll point it out and then it'll pull up all the offers that are available. So it's pretty awesome and it's free for download on Apple devices and also Google Play," Tyquiengco said.

Whether you're looking for a fun family outing or a memorable shopping experience, make your way down to the Shop Guam in-store event this Saturday at the Agana Shopping Center from 12-4pm.
