Small Business Saturday November 27th

Small Business Saturday is November 27, 2021 and it’s the perfect to support locally owned small businesses in Downtown South Boston! Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held during the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the United States during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. It is always the last one in November, so it falls between November 24 and November 30.

There are plenty of shops downtown where you can find gift ideas or just shop for yourself. Shops are decorated for the holidays and Santa is making an appearance at The Busy Bean that day too. Grab a hot chocolate or latte, walk the streets while listening to holiday music, and enjoy the festive window displays. Stop in and say hello to local merchants and let them know how much they are appreciated. They are working hard to make this a very special day for everyone who walks through their doors!

Thank you for always supporting our downtown locally owned businesses!
