In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving – typically the weekend that kicks off the holiday shopping season. Small Business Saturday on November 28th is dedicated to help small businesses get more customers through their doors. By shopping small, the money stays within our community and helps our town thrive.
As a rally for the event, the North Manchester Chamber of Commerce will be sponsoring a "Small Business Saturday Passport" that encourages customers to shop locally and collect as many stamps as possible on November 28th. Businesses will pass out the passports to customers on the day of the event. Each time a purchase of $5 or more is made, shoppers will receive a stamp. After three stamps, customers will be entered into a drawing to receive a grand prize.
Stamped passports can be left at any of the following participating businesses: One World Handcrafts, Cottage Creations Florists & Gifts, Blooms & Heirlooms, Harting Furniture Gallery, KenapocoMocha Coffee Shop, the Main View Inn, The Inn Pub & Grill and the Fruit Basket Inn.
Take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy the day shopping small in North Manchester on Small Business Saturday. Businesses will be appreciative of your support. Besides finding some unique gifts and tasty food in one of our local stores, you will be helping our community prosper and grow!
