Support Local Communities Through Shop Small Saturday

Shop Small Saturday is a day dedicated to patronizing community-based businesses that have a positive impact right where you live.

In 2010 American Express founded Shop Small: Small Business Saturday. This cause helps support local economies and promotes vibrant, diverse communities. It happens each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and its dedicated to getting people out to support their local businesses. Join community movements across the nation who are recognizing the importance of shoppers, business owners, and organizers who promote community togetherness. These are the brick and mortar shops and small businesses with community roots. Its a way to rally around those same businesses that support and give to our schools, our organizations, and our causes when we fundraise and ask for their sponsorship.

The shopping scene around Lewes, where our Active Adults Realty office is based, is fortunate to have a varied selection of specialty shops and boutiques. Our business directory showcases a some of our favorite community businesses. And, don't forget that shopping in Delaware is always tax-free. After spending time at the beach or visiting our many cultural and historic destinations, you can enjoy a wide range of great local restaurants. There are numerous ways to celebrate Shop Small Saturday and let your community know how much you appreciate their efforts.

On November 25 when you are out-and-about, be sure to visit your favorite place but take some time to discover new-to-you businesses. You may just find a hidden gem that youve passed by but never took the time to enter. You may uncover a new restaurant that just happens to offer the most scrumptious dessert that you will return to again and again. Go out and explore all that your community has the offer.

For instance, when we wanted to order new shirts with the Active Adults Realty logo, we sought out the services of CreateAShirt. CreateAShirt offers incredibly fast delivery of custom screen-printed t-shirts, tanks, hoodies & long sleeved shirts to customers in Delaware.

For an array of professional services, specialty shops and boutiques, restaurants, entertainment and recreation-oriented venues, plus cozy bed-and-breakfasts, hotels, or inns,be sure to visit your local Chamber of Commerce website.
