Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday
November 25, 2017
The Mount Vernon Downtown Association (MVDA) encourages you to support your friends and neighbors on Small Business Saturday, November 25, and throughout the year by shopping for your loved ones at our independently-owned small businesses FIRST! Brick and mortar businesses support our local economy by providing local jobs and sales tax revenue, while contributing to the unique, friendly small town feel of our community. Additionally, independent retailers return more than 3 times as much money per dollar of sales to the local community than chain competitors. Shopping online returns almost no local benefit.* The MVDA is delighted that Mayor Jill Boudreau has issued a proclamation in support of small business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is designed to encourage people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. The MVDA is excited to welcome back Santa’s Elves again this year. You never know who will be tapping you on the shoulder with a free gift from one of our Mount Vernon Downtown merchants!
