Small Business Saturday in Manchester, NH

)Small Business Saturday in Manchester, NH

Shop Small on Saturday, November 30, 2019!

The Greater Manchester Chamber (GMC) and Intown Manchester Management, Inc., are partnering once again to bring Small Business Saturday to Manchester, NH on November 30, 2019. The goal is to encourage residents and visitors of Downtown and Greater Manchester to support small, local businesses.

Small businesses are encouraged to market that they are participating in Small Business Saturday, open their doors, extend their hours and offer a promotion for shoppers. Ideally, shoppers will be discovering some of their new favorite places and businesses will be connecting with the community…it is a win-win!

The GMC and Intown Manchester have put together a Facebook Event, which is a great resource for shoppers to see the types of promotions and incentives small businesses are offering for shopping small! Only businesses who are members of the GMC, or are within Downtown’s Central Business Service District (CBSD), will be featured on the event page. However, all small businesses are encouraged to participate in Small Business Saturday nonetheless.

Join us for a Small Business Saturday Kick-off event at the Bookery from 10 – 11 a.m.! Stop by for coffee with Mayor Craig (free small coffee for first 25 people!)  and a #ShopSmall Canvas tote!

Enjoy free parking throughout downtown on Small Business Saturday including Elm Street, side streets, and victory garage, courtesy of the City of Manchester!
