November 29 is Small Business Saturday Is your business going to participate? Through national partner American Express, a number of promotional events will focus on “Shopping Small” Nov. 29. The Prescott Chamber of Commerce is participating in Small Business Saturday for the third straight year. If you tell us you are also participating, we will add your business name to a list that will be on our website, Facebook page and a special listing in the Daily Courier the day before the event. Many of the participating members will have Small Business Saturday promotional materials and twenty-four businesses will also have a $25 American Express gift card to give to one lucky shopper. Those stores will be chosen at random and listed in the same publications and social media outlets. Be sure to download the list of all participating businesses as many will have special offers just for Small Business Saturday. The Chamber will have a coupon-like booklet of those specials, too. In order to take advantage of these Small Business Saturday opportunities, you must let the Chamber know of your interest by Thursday, Nov. 20, at 5:00 pm. Call Membership Director Neal Sneller (445-2000 ext. 116) or send an email to email@example.com. This day is for all small businesses, so you need not be a Chamber member to participate!
