Saturday, Nov. 30, is Small Business Saturday, and 18 downtown businesses will participate. Small Business Saturday is observed the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and is designed to encourage holiday shoppers to patronize small, local brick-and-mortar businesses.
“Downtown Dayton is home to one of the largest collections of independent retailers in the region,” said Amelia O’Dowd, owner of Brim in the Oregon District, who helped organize this year’s event downtown. “In addition to great shopping, restaurants and bars will be offering gift certificates in addition to being open for lunch and dinner, and such businesses as wellness/yoga studios and salons will be offering gift certificates in addition to merchandise.”
The Downtown Dayton Partnership’s website, www.downtowndayton.org, has a complete list of downtown businesses, as well as a list of business resources, arts and cultural amenities, a dining guide, parking map, and much more.
