You’ve heard of Black Friday. And Cyber Monday. But did you know that Saturday, November 26, 2016 is Small Business Saturday? It’s the day to step away from the big box stores and discover unique gifts, hand selected by local small business owners. And Charlotte is having a party! Charlotte Chamber of Commerce and Charlotte small businesses invite holiday shoppers, families, arts and music appreciators and fun seekers to visit Charlotte Saturday, November 26th from 9am – 4pm.
When you walk down Charlotte’s Cochran Ave. you’ll find great restaurants to fuel yourself for a day of shopping. Gift certificates for pampering from beauty and tanning salons to discounts for pampering your favorite pooch. Discover many unique gifts from friendly local businesses.
Charlotte Michigan Small Business Saturday in downtown is family friendly
The kids can come to see Santa from 12pm – 3pm at Charlotte Plaza Floral and roll in the holidays with a free viewing of “Polar Express” at Eaton Theatre at noon. A donation of a non-perishable item for the local food bank is your admission ticket. Santa will make a special visit to the Eaton Theatre at 11:30am before the movie. Music and carolers will fill the street with holiday fun for the whole family. Charlotte small business Saturday is a wonderful time to shop or simply go in and visit with local business owners and hear what’s happening in the community.
Experience the magic of the season by finding that perfect gift from a small business
The personalized attention you receive when you can see the business owner’s eyes light up as they share a story about how that gift was made. Or where it came from. Or how it’s a one-of-a-kind. The gift immediately becomes even more meaningful and special. Moments like that are what makes the holidays magical.
Shopping small builds strong communities
When you buy a product or service from a small business, your money goes right back into the local economy. That’s why the Charlotte Chamber and the Capital Area Small Business Development Center are asking you to shop small for some holiday shopping this weekend.
Let’s all do our part to support America’s small businesses as they continue to strengthen our economy and create jobs, Happy Charlotte Michigan Small Business Saturday, and Happy Holidays.
