Merchants of historic downtown Nacogdoches are gearing up to participate in “Small Business Saturday,” this coming Saturday, November 24. But why celebrate and visit Small Businesses? First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. This year, November 24 is the third annual Small Business Saturday, a day to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Small Business Saturday is a national movement to drive shoppers to local merchants across the U.S. the day after Black Friday. Downtown Nacogdoches merchants have gotten creative and are using their online marketing tools to bring attention to the event as well. Various merchants are also equipped with the Small Business Saturday Welcome Mats.
“We are thrilled with the national attention ‘Small Business Saturday’ is gaining,” said Main Street Manager Sarah O’Brien, “What better way to join the movement and show your support for the Nacogdoches economy than by supporting our local small businesses.” Historic Downtown Nacogdoches will come alive this Saturday with the annual Holiday favorite Wassail Fest, part of the Nine Flags Christmas Festival. Over 14 downtown merchants will be brewing their best wassail. Merchants will be vying for the Wassail Trophy by brewing up their own versions of the holiday apple cider.
“Without a doubt, I can’t imagine a better celebration of Small Business Saturday, anywhere in the country, than right here in downtown Nacogdoches during Wassail Fest,” said O’Brien.
