Small Business Saturday (and Black Friday) Downtown

November 13, 2019 by Jeslyn Stiles

Shop small this holiday season! You won’t find big box stores, long lines at the register, or mass-produced items in Downtown Harrisonburg. You’ll discover quality, one-of-kind, artisan items that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll receive personalized attention from small business owners and employees who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. Most importantly, you’ll make a significant impact on our community by investing your money locally. By shopping small, you’re investing in our schools, roads, and other services we use daily.

Here’s a list of specials, promotions, and events happening downtown for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. Also be sure to check out this year’s Holiday Gift Guide for a preview of all downtown has to offer this holiday shopping season!
