It’s a day to shop locally in Statesville.
Nov. 30 is Small Business Saturday in downtown Statesville, with a host of businesses offering deals designed to entice residents who are holiday shopping.
More than 50 shops, boutiques and restaurants will be participating.
To keep up, shoppers can first visit the Welcome Station at the Statesville Visitor Center located at 118 W. Broad St. to earn giveaways and enter a drawing for a $500 Downtown Shopping Spree. The first 90 people to check in between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. will receive a Small Business Saturday tote.
“Shopping small helps support your friends, neighbors, other local businesses and the local economy,” a release from the Downtown Statesville Development Corporation stated. “So spread the cheer and give the gift that keeps on giving by eating, shopping and living local in Downtown Statesville this holiday season.”
Most participating stores will be open normal Saturday hours, but one should check with local stores for specifics. For specific deals offered, visit https://www.downtownstatesvillenc.org/.
