Mark your calendars for Small Business Saturday in downtown Delray Beach on November 28th!
The main fabric of Downtown Delray Beach is comprised of 93% small business owners, both retail and restaurants, many of whom have had their doors open for over 15 years and one as long as 80.
The Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA) encourages residents and visitors to celebrate “the small business” by shopping and dining locally and introducing yourselves to the owners and chefs throughout Downtown. American Express created this national shopping day event for cardholders and merchants which encourages people to shop at small businesses. The campaign was launched in 2010 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
With than 450 unique boutiques, salons, spas, galleries and restaurants, Downtown Delray Beach is a destination to Shop Small.
Recent new retail additions to the Downtown include BCBG, Margaux Riviera, Nicole’s Boutique and Viva Lola.
They join small businesses including Periwinkle, Ginjer, Love Rich Boutique, Oh My Bod, Roxy Lulu, From Roehm with Love, Monogram Closet, the Spy Store and long-time local businesses Vince Canning Shoes, Avalon Gallery, Murder on the Beach Bookstore, Petite Connection, Hands, Delray Camera Shop, Richwagen’s Bike & Sport, and many more.
Participating businesses will be distributing reusable totes and pens provided by American Express, while supplies last, as well as celebrating “Shop Small” in various ways such as with refreshments and special gifts.
