When you don't wake up at three in the morning on Black Friday to fight off hoards of competitive shoppers, you have a lot more energy to do fun stuff. Am I right?
Well, this Saturday, our very own 9th & 9th district has definitely got something fun for you to enjoy with all that newfound energy. To celebrate Small Business Saturday, they're throwing a full-on holiday-shopping-meets-rowdy-street-festival-style party! That's right—you can shop at all your favorite local stores, chow down on local food and drinks, all while hanging out with friends and neighbors!
But this party's more than just local flavors... Remember these 9th & 9th neighborhood maps? On Saturday, you can pick one up at any participating 9th & 9th business and collect stamps for each purchase you make. Then, when you're all shopped out, just drop off your stamped map at any of those businesses to be entered into a drawing for the grand prize collection of gifts from all of the 9th & 9th local businesses! The winner will be announce on Monday.
All along 900 South, between 800 and 1100 East, there'll be activities and hot drinks—as well as industrial heaters in case it gets cold. So whether your holiday shopping includes Hip & Humble, The Stockist by Fresh, Gypsy Moon Emporium, or any of the other cool shops—or if you just want something fun to do on Saturday, come join us!
