If you’ve been itching to get out and about to do some holiday shopping, well, us too, and this is definitely not the year to leave it until the last minute. We’ve got news about a couple events (besides Black Friday) that are sure to knock some gifts off your list and leave your wallet feeling happy!
Small Business Saturday
In case you haven’t heard, Small Business Saturday takes place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and is meant to bolster sales for local small businesses. Now more than ever, small businesses need our help to thrive, and many stores are offering big incentives to customers thinking about heading out on November 28.
The idea of shopping during peak times like Black Friday or Small Business Saturday doesn’t excite everyone. We totally get that. Luckily, you don’t necessarily have to shop in person. It’s 2020, and loads of small businesses allow you to shop online and have your goods delivered. Also, say this one with us: “BOPIS” – buy online, pickup in-store. BOPIS items tend to offer extra savings since you get to take advantage of special deals without relying on shipping.
In true holiday spirit, tons of stores are extending their sales periods this year to better promote social distancing and to give people more time to shop safely. Keep an eye on your favorite stores to learn more about deals!
If you happen to be on 19th Street during Small Business Saturday, we’ve got it on good word that We Olive & Wine Bar will be giving away complimentary We Olive mimosas after 10:00 AM for as long as supplies last. Head on over early!
Holiday on 19th Street
On December 4th from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM, 19th Street will alight with bright holiday displays and twinkling lights, and all are welcomed to walk up and down the historic road to admire the decorations. Stores will be having some pretty amazing sales, so you’ll want to be on the lookout as you pass by your favorite shops.
And take it from us: whoever said Santa Claus is not coming to town didn’t know what they were talking about. You might even see him at Circa Real Estate if you book an appointment with him!
In 2020 fashion, this year’s annual event is a little different than years’ past. Due to social distancing measures, visitors shouldn’t expect the party atmosphere they’re used to from prior years, and masks are strongly recommended, of course. This year’s Holiday on 19th Street is just a great way to get out there and socialize (from a distance), enjoy holiday lights with your loved ones, and support local small businesses by indulging in a little late-night shopping. Perfect for those who may have missed Small Business Saturday or Black Friday!
The holidays are looking different this year. There’s no doubt. However you choose to shop or spend your time during the holidays this year, we hope you have a blast and stay safe.
