APPLETON, Wis (WBAY) – Small businesses have a request: don’t blow your holiday shopping budget on Black Friday deals.
Small Business Saturday is a growing movement in the country. It encourages people to shop at locally-owned stores.
In the Fox Valley, shoppers can get a passport in the newspaper or online and bring it to participating businesses or go online for a chance to win prizes.
“The passport lists the participating businesses and their offers. You get your passport stamped and after five stamps you turn it in to win prizes. There’s over $1,000 worth of prizes,” says Djunna Hugdahl, Event Coordinator, Appleton Downtown Inc.
The passport promotion is only for Nov. 26–Small Business Saturday.
