Love Local – Gift Local on Small Business Saturday


2020 is the year to show our love for our locally owned businesses! We encourage you to show the love by purchasing gifts at locally owned small businesses this season.

Join us as we kick-off the holiday shopping season on Small Business Saturday.

Come to Downtown Manchester on 11/28 from 10am to 4pm for great deals, shopping challenges and of course- prizes!

Visit the Welcome Tent in the Forest Street Lot where you can:

  • Enter the “I pledge to gift local 2020” prize drawings
  • Pick up a value-packed tote bag (first 50 people!)
  • Pick up a Connect 4 Game Board

Next, head off to start shopping at our locally owned businesses. Complete the shopping challenges on your game board to earn entries to win one of many great prizes! Remember, a gift comes in all shapes and forms. Gift cards for a beauty service or a fitness class make great stocking stuffers! A gift card for a coffee makes a great teacher’s gift! You can’t go wrong with a gift certificate to a restaurant!
