STOCKBRIDGE – This Saturday is known as Small Business Saturday across America, and the city of Stockbridge is celebrating the day in style.
The Small Business Saturday initiative encourages people to shop at small businesses and dine in locally-owned restaurants for the Saturday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday shopping season.
The Stockbridge Main Street program is encouraging community members to visit Stockbridge businesses all day on Saturday, Nov. 30.
“The Stockbridge Small Business Saturday provides an awesome opportunity for area businesses to highlight their products and services,” said Linda Jones, owner of C&L Family Salon, in a release. “My business has participated for several years, and I am pleased to take part in the national initiative. The Stockbridge Main Street Program does amazing work to highlight area businesses and I see the positive impact in my own business and others.”
All members of the community are encouraged to obtain shopping passports for Small Business Saturday. The passports are being offered at Stockbridge’s website, cityofstockbridge.com, as well as at Stockbridge City Hall and participating Stockbridge businesses.
Participants who visit participating businesses can get incentive stamps. When participants get five stamps, they will be entered into a grand prize drawing for free merchandise and gift certificates from participating merchants.
Over 30 businesses are participating in the Small Business Saturday event, with businesses including beauty salons, restaurants, donuts, coffee, cupcakes, furniture and the arts, among others.
