HASTINGS – Small Business Saturday will be coming up on Saturday and it’s a very important day for local businesses.
The event will take place in Downtown Hastings from 9am to 4pm. You start at The Blue Moon Coffee to get your Small Business “Swag Bag” filled with coupons and great deals.
Tammy Orthmann, the Director of the Downtown Center Association, says that small businesses need the extra holiday uptick that comes with this time of year.
It’s great to have this awareness during the holiday season because people are shopping. But our biggest hope is that you remember throughout the year that we’re there and that we continue to offer the excellent customer service and the really knowledgeable things that you may not be able to find online. So we hope it carries throughout the year too.
There will be a chance to win some downtown dollars as well. You can use those dollars right there on the spot or save them for later.
There will also be a giveaway of 200 downtown dollars if you return your receipts back to The Blue Moon Coffee. The Boy Scouts will be there to wrap gifts for people for a small donation in return.
