Shop til you drop this weekend during Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday 2020

Tiffany Parker shops at the Show Me Crafts pop up shop during the 2020 Small Business Saturday event in Fredericktown. This year's event, Nov. 27, will also include pop up shops. In the event of bad weather pop up shops will be moved to Teen Town.

Starting at 10 a.m., Nov. 27, shopping will begin with many of the local shops offering special deals just for the day.

There will be pop up shops along the main streets and courtsquare, if it rains the pop-up shops will be moved to Teen Town and several food trucks are planning to setup around town.

Make sure to stop by the Madison County Chamber of Commerce booth, set up on the south side of the Madison County Courthouse, to pick up a brochure of information about businesses having sales and participating in the day. 

Located right next to the MCCC booth will be First State Community Bank which plans to give away a free "Survival Kit" for the first 100 shoppers.

"Shoppers will have the opportunity to be entered in several prize drawings if they visit businesses which are members of the Chamber of Commerce," MCCC Event Chair Tessa Rehkop said. "Get your brochure signed at each stop and then message a picture of it to the Chamber's Facebook @MadisonCountyCC"

Rehkop said there will also be a fun photo opportunity at the chamber's booth, pictures with Santa for a $5 donation to Furever Paws & Claws will be at The Crazy Wildflower from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Christmas music will be playing throughout the square to help kick off the Christmas season.

"Small Business Saturday is important in small communities like Fredericktown," Rehkop said. "This is a day to remind people to support the local businesses."

Rehkop said, not only does Small Business Saturday help the local owners, but 67 cents of every dollar spent locally stays in the community, so it helps everyone.

"Our local shops have so many amazing gift options," Rehkop said. "There are plenty of items I would love to find under the tree Christmas morning and several I plan to pick up for people on my list. Also, most of the local shops have their own Facebook pages so if you don't want to get out and about, we encourage visiting those to order online."

Rehkop said MCCC representatives have personally visited retail businesses in the community to encourage them to host a deal for the day. She said the chamber has also worked hard to promote the local deals via their website and social media.

"My goal is to not only boost sales to local businesses but also to create a fun, holiday atmosphere for shoppers in our cute little downtown," Rehkop said. "A lot of the locals wish our downtown was busier and this is one day out of the year that we can make that happen."
