ST. CLOUD (WJON News) – You’re encouraged to get out a shop local next week in downtown St. Cloud.
The St. Cloud Downtown Alliance is partnering with downtown shops, restaurants and services for Shop Small Saturday.
Downtown Planning & Development Director Tyler Bevier says the event is a rewards program for local shopping.
We’re going to have postcards at participating businesses and if you spend $200 locally you will be entered to win a merchandise gift basket as you shop your way through downtown St. Cloud.
Bevier says shoppers will earn stamps on their postcards for every $10 they spend. He says events like this are a great way to highlight what locally owned businesses have to offer.
I think that’s what’s great about events, it brings a non-traditional customer into your business. There are such a variety of businesses in downtown St Cloud and this is a great way to get them in for the first time.
Postcards will be available at participating businesses.
Shop Small Saturday takes place next Saturday, November 26th, from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm in downtown St. Cloud.
