Small Business Saturday – Shop Small

Be Featured in Small Business Saturday 2015
Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.26.37 AM
On Saturday November 28th we will be celebrating our annual Small Business Saturday. This event encourages people to shop locally at small businesses during the black friday shopping weekend. We have canvas shopping bags, door mats, signage, balloons, and more for you to share with your customers and help advertise on the day of the event. In addition we will be doing a giveaway basket again this year. Once a customer makes a purchase they are invited to fill out an entry form (one per purchase) for a chance to win a gift basket made up of merchandise for our downtown vendors.

To be included you must provide:

 1. A sale or deal that you will be featuring on the 28th that we can advertise. 
2. Either $25 in the form of a Gift Certificate or Merchandise to be included in the  gift basket giveaway.

Tips for Businesses:

We are encouraging all participating businesses to stay open until at least 4pm on Saturday.

To promote the day: Hand out postcard flyers that are provided to all of your customers prior to and on Saturday November 29th. Display the SBS merchandise provided by La Grande Main Street. Please put up the picture of the gift baskets that can be won. Additional PDF flyers will be sent to participating businesses via email. Post signs and put balloons out to let people know that you are participating in the event.

On the day: Hand out entry form to any customer making a purchase on Saturday November 28th. It is a good idea to have an area off to the side, where customers can fill out entry form, so it doesn’t slow down your checkout process. Keep entry forms behind your counter so that customers realize they need to make a purchase to be entered. Customers can enter at as many businesses as they want as long as they make a purchase at each one.  The entry forms will be picked up Tuesday, December 1st from all participating businesses and the winners will be drawn at the Main Street Office. Winners will be announced on LGMSD’s facebook page and winners will be contacted by LGMSD.

Thank You for participating and helping to making Main Street successful!

With Halloween right around the corner, we are starting to organize our Annual Downtown Safe Trick or Treating. The event will go from 4-6pm on Friday October 30th. Businesses or community groups are encouraged to participate! If your business or group is not located within the closed street section of downtown (4th and Adams to 4th and Greenwood), then please fill out the above Downtown Trick or Treat Form and return them to the La Grande Main Street office.

Some ideas to promote your business or organization: 
1. Staple coupons or information sheets to candy you’re passing out.
2. Come up with a fun game or educational activity for the kids. Their prize for playing your game: candy!
3. Organize an activity that gets the whole family involved. This is a great time to educate parents on what your store, or your non-profit group brings to La Grande. 
4. Do you have an upcoming sale or event? Promote it to families that are downtown on Halloween day.
