Win Big and Save on Small Business Saturday

Blog Post - November 13, 2022

Category: What's New

One of our favorite days of the year!

Come celebrate Small Business Saturday in the Village on Saturday, November 26, 2022 as we boost awareness and support for our local small businesses. Enjoy shopping specials, discounts, and merchant hospitality as you “Shop Small.” Nearly every locally-owned store in the area will participate in the “Shop Small” campaign "Small Business Saturday." 

A day full of surprises, savings, and support

Be one of the first 100 people to check-in at the Carlsbad Village Association hospitality tent at the corner of Grand Avenue and State Street and pick up a free, reusable canvas tote bag. While you're there, grab a Shopping Passport to guide you to the stores offering specials, discounts, and gifts with purchase. Be sure to get a free raffle ticket to enter the drawing of over $1,000 in restaurant gift cards. Want to increase your odds? Shop at a certain number of participating stores for additional raffle tickets and greater chances to win!

Live music, swag giveaways, and surprises in store on this very special day!

Support your favorite local spots or find new ones

Small businesses need you now more than ever before. Every time you pick up a coffee at your local café, grab lunch at the mom-and-pop shop or buy a new handbag from a local store, you're making an impact in your community. In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. 

Spend the Day in the Village

Public parking is plentiful in the Village, and the beach is only two blocks away. Many casual and fine dining establishments are within steps from the venue, as well as shopping at a wide variety of boutiques, salons, and galleries.
