Small Business Saturday: Support Local Shops!

Who: You!
What: Small Business Saturday
When: Saturday, Nov. 24, after Thanksgiving
Where: Federal Hill (and Main Streets everywhere)
Why: To support our community and encourage shopping locally!

Sometimes, Black Friday can be a little too hectic, even for the seasoned shopper.  So this year shop on Small Business Saturday instead! For those who don’t know, Small Business Saturday is a movement started by American Express that encourages shoppers to support small businesses and buy locally.

Federal Hill is full of great shops and boutiques.  Businesses like these depend on their communities to thrive. And shopping locally has so many advantages, like it’s uniqueness! You’ll be buying something one-of-a-kind and full of Baltimore charm, and no one else will have it.

It’s fun! Make a day out of it, shop, stop for lunch at any of the great restaurants, and shop some more.  There’s no better way to support you community than to partake in Small Business Saturday the 24th, after Thanksgiving. And why stop there?  Continue to shop locally all through out the year!
