Event Category: City Event
In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
Locally, the La Salle Business Association organizes the event and coordinates the marketing efforts.
This year we are again offering an additional incentive – prize baskets! Customers who make purchases at FOUR participating businesses in La Salle and drop their passport off at Santa’s house are eligible to win a variety of great gift certificates and gifts that are part of the baskets. Each of the FIVE baskets is valued at over $300!
Shap and Elizabeth from 99.3 WAJK will be broadcasting LIVE from 11am-1pm throughout downtown thanks to Illinois Valley Community Hospital, Patriot Printing and First Federal Savings Bank in La Salle.
FREE gift wrapping will be available at City Hall from 11am-3pm. Volunteers from Trinity Catholic Academy have provided the supplies and will accept donations.
Hometown National Bank and IVCH will be handing out delicious goodies near La Salle State Bank and near the fountain at Gooding and First Street.
