Small businesses help ensure local economies stay strong and vibrant.  In Virginia, 47% of employees work at a small business. Show your support of your community by “shopping small” on Saturday November 30th.


Come out on Saturday, November 30th and support the local small businesses of Historic Downtown Manassas on Shop Small Saturday!

What does it mean to Shop Small?
Shopping Small is about more than just shopping at small businesses because it also helps to support local economies and promote vibrant, diverse communities. Shopping Small is a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together to celebrate the community because they know it matters.

What is Small Business Saturday?
It’s an annual shopping tradition dedicated to supporting small businesses and celebrating communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year, you can get out and support the places you love with the people you love on Nov 30.


Why Participate in the Shop Small Movement?
Small businesses play a key role in helping communities thrive. By shopping or dining at your favorite local places throughout the year, you’re showing your support for small businesses and making a positive impact in your community.

Where can you find more information about the impact that small businesses have on your state?
To help show the impact small businesses have on your state, we used business data, statistics, and findings from the U.S. Small Business Administration. For more information about the SBA and how they collect their data, please visit SBA.gov.

Rewards for shopping small on November 30th, 2019! 
Historic Manassas, Inc. and the Old Town Business Association have partnered up to reward those customers that spend $100 or more on Small Business Saturday November 30th, 2019.

For every $100 spent on merchandise at any of the unique shops in Historic Downtown Manassas, we’ll give you a $25 Historic Manassas gift card. Supplies are limited.

Purchases must be made at a location in downtown Manassas. The amount can be cumulative, so you don’t have to spend $100 at just one location. The $100 must be for merchandise only, food, beverage and services purchases are excluded. Purchases must be made on November 30th, 2019.  Bring your receipts to the Manassas Train Depot – 9431 West Street between 9am and 5pm starting November 30th until December 14th to receive your gift card.  After December 14th the offer is void, and supplies are limited, so you’ll want to turn the receipts in as soon as possible.
