Economic Development Commission

Shop Local on Small Business Saturday, November 25, 2017

The Southbury Economic Development Commission (EDC) is running its 2017 Shop Local Campaign during the American Express Small Business Saturday.

The event is taking place on November 25th, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

To celebrate the occasion the Southbury EDC will be running a Passport Contest. Obtain a passport from a participating Southbury merchant* or the EDC booth outside of the former LaBonne’s. The booth will be open from 8 am to 1 pm.

Visit as many merchants as you can on Small Business Saturday and ask each participating merchant to stamp your passport. The customer with the most stamps on their passport has a chance to win a $50 gift card, courtesy of the Southbury Economic Development Commission. 

*A participating merchant is one who has signed up for our specific Shop Local program with the Southbury EDC and given their consent to participate.

Local businesses will also be offering treats, discounts, coupons and deals to make your visit special.

Businesses will also have available the 2017 version of our Shop Local reusable bags!
