DUBOIS – More than 20 local businesses will participate in the 10th anniversary of Small Business Saturday on Nov. 30 in downtown DuBois.
Small Business Saturday, an American Express trademark, always takes place on the last Saturday of November, and between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
American Express estimates that for every dollar spent at a small business in the United States, approximately 67 cents will stay in the local community.
According to Julie Stewart of Downtown DuBois Revitalization Group (DDRG), welcome centers will be located at Aegis Coffee Roasters and Raven Moon’s Oracle.
She said both places will distribute shopping bags filled with coupons, information and product samples to those who shop small downtown.
“Pop-up shops” will be located at 3 W. Long Ave., and 17 N. Brady St.; throughout the event, shoppers will also be invited to enter the DDRG’s Shopping Passport Contest.
From Nov. 30 through Dec. 18, shoppers can save receipts from six purchases made from participating downtown businesses for a chance to win prizes.
Shoppers should visit Farmers Insurance Agency to verify receipts to enter. The agency is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Other activities will include story-time for kids at the DuBois Public Library and picture opportunities with Santa, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m., Nov. 30 at the Christmas house.
Small Business Saturday in DuBois will also feature musical entertainment, other “goodies” and an appearance by 2019 Clearfield County Fair Queen Rebecca Liddle.
Plenty of parking will be available at the lot near 22 W. Washington Ave., Stewart said. For more information or questions, please contact Stewart at the DDRG office.
