This November 30th is the ten-year anniversary of Small Business Saturday. This annual event is designed to remind people to buy local from the many small businesses in their community.  88 million consumers nationwide make an effort to make a purchase from a locally owned small business on this day and many continue shopping local throughout the year.  Shopping local keeps your community unique and special. “We vote with our dollars everyday on which business will succeed and which ones will close. Let’s make sure Annapolis remains that special place by supporting the businesses in your community,” says Erik Evans the Executive Director of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership.

The businesses in Downtown Annapolis and the Annapolis Arts District are gearing up for this big weekend that officially kicks off the shopping season. The holiday decoration and window displays are going up and the downtown area is starting to look magical. The merchants and restaurants are ready to meet shoppers and help them find unique gifts, provide old fashioned customer service and they even have free gifts at select locations. They encourage you to get to know your local shop owners by name and enjoy shopping in your community.  “This is a day where we say thank you for supporting small businesses and you can say thank you to the locally owned businesses that work hard to make our community unique and special,” says Matt Schatzle, Chairman of the Downtown Annapolis Partnership.
