Have you ever considered the economic implications of purchasing at least 5 holiday gifts from a locally owned establishment? When consumers buy local, significantly more money stays in the community. Buying local also means that you are supporting your neighbors and friends. Our local businesses give St. Bernard Parish a unique flavor that distinguishes the community from others in the region.
This holiday season, join us in patronizing the retailers, restaurants, salons, grocery stores, and all of the other locally owned businesses that can only be found here in St. Bernard. The St. Bernard Economic Development Foundation is proud to announce a week-long event aimed at supporting St. Bernard's small businesses. Beginning on Saturday, November 25, 2017, shoppers can pick up a St. Bernard Shop Small Passport at participating locations.
Shoppers have from Saturday, November 25, 2017, through Sunday, December 3, 2017, to get there passport stamped at one of the businesses listed below. To complete the passport, shoppers must purchase from 5 or more stores. After your shopping adventure, drop off your completed passport at Cafe Aquarius to be entered for a chance to win a $200 American Express Gift Card.
The St. Bernard Chamber and St. Bernard Tourism will be rallying the community with a Small Business Saturday Breakfast Kickoff at Cafe Aquarius from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. Shoppers can enjoy a complimentary mimosa, pick up a Shop Small Swag Bag, and speak with a business community representative about the Shop Small campaign. Grab a coffee and pastry or sit down for a delicious brunch before you spend the day shopping for Christmas gifts.
