Sandwiched in between the barrage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday promotions is a little thing called Small Business Saturday.
On Thanksgiving weekend when the official shopping season is supposed to begin, this quiet little event takes place. Unfortunately, one day does not a season make, particularly when small businesses, just like major retailers, count on year-end sales to survive the rest of the year.
Small Business Saturday will be celebrated Nov. 30 in Historic Downtown Casa Grande. Our holiday rewards program gives you a chance to win every time you shop, eat or play downtown during the month of November. Just snap a photo of every receipt from your purchases during the month of November at any Casa Grande Main Street member business listed in our Visitor Guide.
Post your photo to our Facebook Event page for Small Business Saturday or email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each receipt you submit earns you an entry into our Small Business Saturday drawing for prizes from our locally owned restaurants and shops. Winners and any additional promotions will be announced on Small Business Saturday. Check out our website cgmainstreet.org and Facebook facebook.com/cgmainstreet/ page for updates.
As the year draws to a close, don’t forget we’ll be celebrating the holiday season on Saturday, Dec. 7 with Winter Wonderland and The Electric Light Parade. Historic Florence Street will be hosting Santa, live music and activities during the day and is the best spot to set up your chair for a great view of the twinkling floats that evening.
Dec. 19 will be our last Day Out Downtown for the year, with no event in January as we prepare for our 20th annual Street Fair and Car Show Jan. 18 and 19, 2020. Please contact us at cgmainstreet.org for exhibitor info, car show registration and volunteer opportunities.
It is the season of giving, so please remember our Neon Sign Park needs your support for ongoing sign and park maintenance. Your donation is tax deductible and can be distributed over monthly payments. Just visit our website at neonsignpark.com and click on the donate button for options.
