Historic Downtown Glendale’s shops and restaurants will celebrate Small Business Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 27.

Small Business Saturday is traditionally held the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Now in its 11th year, the event continues to be an annual holiday shopping tradition — just one part of the shop small movement to support small businesses every day and everywhere. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and small businesses create about two-thirds of new jobs in the U.S. each year.

A 2020 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey commissioned by American Express found that 97% of shoppers recognized the positive impact they can make by shopping small, and 85% reported they also encouraged friends and family to shop small as well.

“When you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday, and all year long, you can help create a big impact,” said Lorraine Zomok, Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association president and owner of Memory Lane Trinkets and Treasures.

Small Business Saturday is the perfect opportunity to shop for unique holiday gifts and enjoy a lunch with family and friends, all while supporting locally owned businesses.

Start your Small Business Saturday journey at the Arizona Information Center, located at Memory Lane Trinkets and Treasures, 5836 W. Palmaire Ave. Downtown Docents will welcome visitors and provide walking maps and downtown shopping and dining information. The first 50 visitors will receive a free Small Business Saturday gift item.

Visitors to Downtown Glendale’s Small Business Saturday are encouraged to stay into the evening to enjoy the Murphy Park LiGHTS!, which illuminates the park located in the heart of the Historic Downtown. Guests can also visit with Santa Claus from 6 to 8 p.m. Santa’s Village is located adjacent to Memory Lane Trinkets and Treasures, 5836 W. Palmaire Ave.

Historic Downtown Glendale is made up of two distinct historic districts. Catlin Court features mature shade trees and welcoming front porches lined with picket fences, and the Old Towne District is home to unique shops and a growing Restaurant Row nestled along red brick sidewalks.

The two districts span 12 blocks.
