Small Business Saturday Information

On November 30, UC Merced SBDC will be hosting Merced's Small Business Saturday! Small Business Saturday is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, right after Black Friday, where shoppers are encouraged to shop at their local stores!

This year, we will be giving shoppers incentives to visit local shops in Merced. Shoppers will be given passports to get stamped at each location, and upon completion, shoppers can get discounts or raffle prizes! Shoppers will be able to collect these stamps for rewards until December 6, 2019 at noon.

Join us as we celebrate all the places that make our community great of Small Business Saturday. Shop small and support your local economy and local businesses!
