Shop small to make a BIG impact on the local economy

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

November 26 is Small Business Saturday in Scranton!

As part of Scranton Tomorrow's Deck the Downtown holiday campaign, Downtown Scranton businesses will celebrate Small Business Saturday on November 26 to encourage everyone in the community to support locally-owned businesses this holiday season.

What is Small Business Saturday?

Small Business Saturday is a day to support local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods around the country. American Express created this national movement to increase sales for small businesses across the country. Downtown Scranton shops and restaurants have participated in Small Business Saturday for more than a decade. When you shop small, your purchases make a big impact on the local economy.

Where can I find participating businesses?
