Shop Small This Season

Small Business Saturday is a movement encouraging people to shop at small local businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. A counterpart to big-box chains and online retail giants, the powerful message of the holiday is to support local entrepreneurs and keep their brick and mortar businesses alive. By doing so, we help energize local economy, keeping it viable and beneficial to all. 

We're so proud of all the unique small businesses here in the Great Western Catskills - the creators, the makers, the crafters, the farmers and the artists who shape and contribute so much to not only the economy but the inner landscape of the area. Through their work and efforts, we form our identity and pride. Your shopping dollars contribute to the sustainability of our entire vibrant community. 

While the focus of this Small Business Saturday is the day after Thanksgiving, we encourage you to shop small all year long. There are a variety of special events scheduled on Saturday November 26th and throughout the entire holiday season. Please see below, and visit our events calendar or our Facebook page to make sure you never miss the parties, parades, evening shopping events and craft fairs that will make this holiday season so magical!
