After we've all had our fill of turkey, some will venture out in the dark hours of Friday morning to wait in long lines for Black Friday Deals. The rest of us will spend a relaxing day at home, saving up for Small Business Saturday!
Small Business Saturday is a National Shopping Holiday founded by American Express aimed to encourage shoppers to spend their holiday shopping dollars at locally-owned shops and businesses. When you visit an independent local business, you...
- Keep more money in your local economy
- Celebrate the uniqueness of your community
- Support local jobs
- Help the environment
- Encourage community
- Conserve your tax dollars
- Benefit from local expertise
- Invest in entrepreneurship
- Make your community a destination
This year, Marietta Main Street has teamed up with the Marietta/Washington County CVB, the Marietta Area Chamber of Commerce, and Clutch MOV to make Small Business Saturday a great day to be downtown! Shops will have lots of swag to hand out and special discounts; our Annual Merry-Etta Lighted Christmas Parade (with Santa!) will take place at 6:00pm, Clutch MOV is hosting an Instagram Scavenger Hunt, and some shops will be open later than normal! So grab your friends and family and bring them downtown to experience our unique and special local shops - where you will never have to worry about huge lines around the block, and you are sure to receive a smile with every purchase.
Here is a list of all of our participating merchants:
Happy Shopping! <3
