The Hilltop Campus Village has been designated a Neighborhood Champion for Small Business Saturday, a national movement which takes place on November 30. The emphasis on this event is to encourage consumers to Shop Small, and patronize your small, local independent businesses for the start of the holiday shopping season.
This year, the Hilltop Campus Village district has been encouraging area merchants to offer specials deals and incentive to help draw patrons through its doors. Merchants along Brady Street and Harrison Streets will be offering great deals on food, coffee, books, antiques and other items, all for people buying for themselves or doing shopping for the holidays.
In addition, the Hilltop Campus Village will be offering discount coupons for the stores of participating merchants, given out for the asking and good for a $5 discount on purchases. Volunteers from the Hilltop Campus Villages will be distributing the coupons from 10am to 2pm on Saturday from two locations: Estate Resale Shop at 1326 Brady Street, and the Brewed Book, at 1524 Harrison. The coupons are good for any of the participating stores, but are limited to one per customer. Linen tote bags commemorating the Shop Small movement and Small Business Saturday are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This is the sixth year of participation by the Hilltop Campus Village in this national “Shop Small” movement. This national movement is celebrating its tenth year and proudly sponsored by American Express.
