STRATFORD, Conn. — Bargain hunters who take advantage of the eighth annual Small Business Saturday Nov. 25 will find a host of deals at shops all over Stratford.
Mellow Monkey owner Howard Aspinwall has teamed up with Stratford’s Office of Economic Development to boost Stratford’s own unique businesses on the day after Black Friday.
"The Shop Small event is a great opportunity for small businesses in town to work collaboratively to reinforce Stratford as a destination for shopping and dining out,” said Aspinwall, whose business is located at 360 Sniffens Lane. “All too often, we hear people saying, ‘I didn't even know that store/restaurant/business was in Stratford.’ This event gives each business the opportunity to promote a special offer available on this day, while also inspiring consumers to Shop Small and Dine Small not just for the holidays, but throughout the year."
American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010 and it has been held each year since to encourage Americans to support independent businesses.
The Stratford event features a host of deals on goods and services throughout town.
Fairfield Craft Ales is offered a free empty growler with $10 or more in gift certificate purchases and free popcorn throughout the day.
Renee’s Resale Clothing Outlet and Goody Bassett’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shoppe have a buy one, get a second item at half price sale.
