The story of America is written in every small business. It’s written in the cafes where we meet our first loves, the boutiques where we buy our clothes and accessories and the specialty shops where we find personalized gifts for the people we hold dear. On Nov 25, be there for the businesses that are there for you by shopping with us on Small Business Saturday®.

Founded by American Express® in 2010, Small Business Saturday® is a day to celebrate the small businesses that help support their neighborhoods and is held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. On November 25th, we encourage the Cedar Valley to take part in the Small Business Saturday by shopping at the small, local businesses in downtown Cedar Falls. With more than 40 unique shops and boutiques throughout the downtown district, you are sure to find something for everyone on your list this year. Shoppers stopping by to support local businesses can even receive Shop Small® giveaways like tote bags, buttons and balloons!

Shopping small helps you support your friends, neighbors, other local businesses and the local economy. By choosing local, you not only support local businesses, but you support local community groups who receive donations from those businesses, your friends and neighbors who are employed by those businesses, the local economy which sees a higher return per dollar of revenue from small businesses than from chain stores and other local businesses who are the customers of fellow local businesses. So spread the cheer and give the gift that keeps on giving by eating, shopping and living local in downtown Cedar Falls this holiday season.

Not to mention you can visit Santa while you are Downtown shopping. See you then!
