HOW YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM PARTICIPATING IN SHOP SMALL® SATURDAY
HOW CAN BBA MEMBER BUSINESS PARTICIPATE?
SHOPPING – FALL CRAWL
In the spirit of Small Business Saturday, shoppers can get their holiday shopping done early – and at a discount – with our Fall Crawl Shopping Event. Participating retailers can offer exclusive discounts for ONE DAY ONLY to attract and draw in customers.
FOOD & DRINK – TAKE-OUTS AND TRIALS
Bayside has some of the greatest restaurants and eateries around. Small Business Saturday is the perfect opportunity for those businesses to bring in foodies and patrons, alike. From holiday-themed cocktails, menus, sweets and treats, and exclusive discounts, participants will get a chance to sample the latest and greatest offerings from our local eateries and watering holes.
Visitors will have an opportunity to stop in at our renowned spots for a special experience. Participating restaurants can offer various options including, a signature cocktail and appetizer, a holiday-themed, special desserts, drink specials, and discounted tabs.
Want to add a special feature to attract even more business? We encourage participating businesses to collaborate with local artists and set up a one-day gallery or provide entertainment to your patrons. The possibilities are endless, and collaboration is what will make this event so special.
If some businesses find their bread and butter really comes from the take-out circuit, we didn’t forget you. For those participating eateries, we would encourage offering patrons a discount on their bill or send a special appetizer on the house.
DON’T HAVE A BRICK & MORTAR? NO PROBLEM. WE CAN HELP SUPPORT YOU TOO!
If you are a service that is closed on the weekends or doesn’t have a brick & mortar building, we wouldn’t want to leave you out. Those members can simply share a promotion, a new service, new goods, or an article pertinent to your business (something in relation to the holiday season always works well) and we will share that information on the BBA website, social media platforms, and any printed material (where and when applicable).
Register today and get on the list. We will follow up with you when we are ready to roll out the promotions.
