It's officially November which means the shopping season is here! We are looking forward to supporting our local retailers this season as they offer the community Black Friday and Small Business Saturday deals. In a citywide effort to promote those businesses we have partnered with Design with Hive to create a printed Holiday Shopping Guide that will list every retail store in the City to help shoppers find the perfect gift.
Keep an eye out for the guides to be released on November 18th. We will be delivering them to retailers and the Downtown Kiosk to pass them out to shoppers.
We will be including you in the map regardless of whether or not you are offering a Black Friday or Small Business Saturday deal. Please complete this quick survey about your holiday deals and the hot items you have in store for customers so we can include them in the guide: Take the Survey!
