Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. After we’ve stuffed ourselves with more turkey and pie than we’ll admit, most of us will wake up before the sun and join in the frenzied shopping fever-pitch we all love (or love to hate) known as Black Friday. But mark your calendars for the day after Black Friday, and plan on some shopping fun in downtown Hamilton.

Saturday, November 25th is Small Business Saturday. It’s the prefect to day to check out the local businesses that make our community a brighter, friendlier place to be. Celebrate our community and show your love for your favorite shops and businesses right here in Hamilton. Many of our local businesses will be participating in this year’s shopping event.

Your favorite shops will have can’t-miss specials, and all participating businesses will be open from 10 AM – 6 PM. The Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce will greet you with a helpful shopping map for downtown Hamilton. Pedal Green Pedi Cabs will be operating all day, shuttling shoppers back and forth between Main Street, High Street and Hamilton’s German Village, so it will be easy to get to all of your favorite stores. Hamilton will be decorated for the season, and holiday music will fill the air. Don’t forget to take a break and enjoy a tasty treat at one of our local restaurants or bakeries.

Come to Hamilton for Small Business Saturday and all of your shopping this holiday season. Shop Small, and Shop Local. Hamilton is open for business, and we’re waiting for you!
