Celebrate SoCo: Shop Local and Support the Iconic South Congress Shopping District

Studio 512

On South Congress, every shop has a story! Dine, Rock, and Shop Local. South Congress Avenue is one of the most celebrated shopping districts in Texas, if not the country! Commonly referred to as “SoCo,” the street is home to the funkiest shops, restaurants, and music venues in Austin. If you’ve lived in Central Texas for just a few weeks or a few decades- chances are you’ve strolled down the popular street at least once. But how well do you really know the historic neighborhood?

A New KXAN Partnership: Dine. Shop. Rock. Local.

Studio 512 is excited to announce our new Shop Local partnership sponsored by the South Congress Merchants Association. Brandon Hodge, President of the South Congress Merchants Association, joined us in the studio to debut Visit SoCo- a weekly video series giving the rest of Austin a glimpse into the heart and soul of the beloved South Congress Avenue. Every Friday on KXAN, a small business owner will tell their own unique story about what they sell, why they love Austin, and what drives their passion to serve their community on South Congress. This week we learned more about Brandon’s store, Big Top Candy Shop, and why he has the sweetest gig in town.
