The weekend following Thanksgiving is one of the busiest when it comes to shopping in the U.S.
If you’re looking to save some money as you tackle the holiday shopping season, this is the time to start. And what better place to begin checking items off your list than on the scenic Adirondack Coast, where you’ll find centrally-located shopping centers and quaint city shopping districts overlooking snow-swept Lake Champlain – if nature cooperates!
While shopping is a year-round pastime, there are plenty of deals to be found throughout our many uptowns and downtowns during this time of year specifically, thanks to the area’s Small Business Saturday® initiative.
Well, we all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what is Small Business Saturday®, you ask?
It’s an initiative started by American Express back in 2014 to rally cities and towns across the country in an effort to showcase the special mom and pop shops offering unique merchandise.
Here are just a few of the great local businesses offering deals on Small Business Saturday:
Specialty Products & Services:
Food and Dining:
Home Improvement and Decor:
Other Great Deals:
These deals run far and wide, from Rouses Point to Plattsburgh. Luckily, there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops along the way for you to duck into throughout the day as you plan your routes, cross things off your list, and perhaps even search out inventory online ahead of time!
Deals are being updated all the time, so keep checking back at northcountrychamber.com/sbs as Small Business Saturday® 2017 approaches!
