About this Event

Small Business Saturday® is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and now is a great time to get involved. This year, we’ll be giving shoppers a little extra incentive to visit all of their favorite places—including your business. We’ll be handing out neighborhood passports for shoppers to get stamped every time they visit a participating small business. When they shop at other places later in the day, that stamp could get them something special, like a discount or raffle prize.

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN JOIN IN:

• Join us for the Pre-Small Business Saturday workshop on Wednesday, November 20th from 8:30 am - 9:30 am at the Greater Chamber of Commerce where we’ll provide you with a poster and the resources to participate. Hang it in your business’s window to promote the event.

• We will provide the Shop Small® Passports to the community, or you may hand them out to shoppers on Small Business Saturday.

• When shoppers make a purchase between Saturday, November 30th and Friday, December 6th at noon, mark their passport with a stamp (we will provide the stamps). Thank them for their support with anything from a cup of hot chocolate to a discount.

Need more ideas on how your business can participate on Small Business Saturday? Read this post by Nicolas Straut at Fundera.

Join us as we celebrate all the places that make our community great of Small Business Saturday.
