Shopping Small is 'Big' in Downtown Scranton!
Updated: Nov 24, 2020
Save the Date! November 28 is Small Business Saturday in Scranton
As part of Scranton Tomorrow's Light Up Downtown Scranton holiday campaign, Downtown Scranton businesses will celebrate Small Business Saturday on November 28 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?
Participating businesses will offer special promotions and unique gifts in dozens of shops and eateries in the Downtown Scranton Business District, including:
Art for All: Pop Up Art Sale at AFA Gallery (101 Penn Avenue)
The Giving Tree Wellness Center
Northern Light Espresso Bar and Café
Tammy's Stained Glass Treasures
Tom Grudis Optical & The Bare Accessories
Spread the joy!
Shoppers are encouraged to spread the joy on social media using #shopsmall, #smallbiz, #shoplocal.
But wait, there's more!
Shopping small doesn't end with Small Business Saturday because local shops and eateries are participating in Cyber Monday, too! Find out which Downtown Scranton businesses are ready for online shoppers by clicking here!
