Small Business Saturday encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

To prepare, the Chamber has created a Facebook event to help encourage citizens to Shop Small, Shop Local on Saturday, November 24. 
 
Early next week, we will launch a FB contest inviting the community to participate in the #ShopSmallMorrilton Photo Contest. To be eligible they must: 
 
1. Stop by their favorite local restaurant or small business on Saturday, Nov 24.
2. Take a photo with an owner or employee. 
3. Post the photo to Facebook using the hashtag #ShopSmallMorrilton (tagging the Chamber) to be eligible for prizes. 
 
Contest winners will be selected the following Monday and will be able to pick up prizes at City Hall. 
 
Want to participate as a business?
The national Small Business Saturday campaign was launched by American Express in 2010 to encourage people to support small, local businesses in their communities on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. On this day, participating businesses promote special offers, events, and in-store promotions to attract holiday shoppers or others who are looking for services. Please click HERE if you'd like to learn more about promoting your own business for this event using turnkey social media collateral. 
 
We have 2 opportunities to help you get the word out about your promotions: 
1. Email us with a description of the promotion you plan to offer on Nov 24. Submit to msjasmineawilson@gmail.com by 5pm on Monday, November 19. 
2. Consider providing a gift certificate/card for the #ShopSmallMorrilton Photo Contest. 
 
A list of special promotions, prizes and sponsors will be included in the Morrilton Area Chamber #ShopSmallMorrilton FB invite. 

Let's make Nov 24 an incredible shopping day for our community!
