Small Business Saturday and Shopping Local in Andersonville during the Holidays

Small Business Saturday Passport Program



On Saturday, November 26, the entire neighborhood will come alive with the kick-off to the holiday shopping season, Small Business Saturday. While so many of our businesses will be hosting their own shop local specials and offers, 21 businesses have signed on to participate in the Small Business Saturday Passport Program, hosted by The Runner’s Edge.

What is the Small Business Saturday Passport? Visitors to the neighborhood on November 26 will pick up a passport booklet at any of the participating retailers below. After picking up the passport, shoppers can travel around the neighborhood and receive stamps at the 21 locations while searching for the perfect holiday gifts. Each participating business will also have on display its grand prize raffle basket or item. After collecting any number of destination stamps, shoppers may drop their passports off in the raffle boxes at any of the participating businesses for a chance to win one of the many fabulous prizes!
