Holiday Window Decorating Program Kicks Off Shop Small Saturday

Saturday, November 28th, 2020 is the eleventh annual Shop Small Saturday. Dedicated to supporting the diverse range of local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, and enhance neighborhoods around the country, Shop Small Saturday was created by American Express in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: getting more customers.

Just as last year, the Redlands Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the City of Redlands to champion our local businesses and encourage the community to support the local economy by shopping locally. This year, more than ever in recent years, our businesses need your patronage. Covid-19 continues to impact how we conduct business and personal interactions; however, it doesn’t have to stop all of our traditions and support of our community.

To help kick off the season, The Redlands Chamber of Commerce, Redlands Visitors Center, About Redlands, and the City of Redlands have partnered to encourage downtown businesses with storefront windows to light up the holidays and participate in the Holiday Window Decorating Program.

This family-friendly program is a fun way to celebrate the holiday season, create a festive and beautiful downtown, attract visitors, and showcase our local businesses. To make it even more fun for families, businesses have incorporated snowflakes in their decorations to be counted. Counting slips will be available at the Visitor’s Center for families to pick up. Participants need only go around to the participating businesses and try counting all the snowflakes in the window display and decorations. Slips can be returned to the Visitor’s Center and a participant’s returned slip will be randomly selected to win a prize! (Random winner will be selected and notified on December 29th). One business will also have an orange hiding in the display! All participants who find the window with an orange will be entered into a second opportunity drawing!

Rok N Fondue, Daryl’s Pets and Grooming, Dirtbag Shop, Nichos Ice Cream, Swoon Home, Pacific Premier Bank, Pacific Western Bank, Wells Fargo, Provident Bank, Martha’s Greens, Oscar’s, Frugal Frigate, Hatfield Buick, MacGuyz, Harlo & State, Citrograph, Jacks Toys, Board Game Paradise, Fleur de Lis, Redlands Art Association, Bank of Southern California (formerly CalWest), Laura’s Travel’s, Darrel Olson Insurance Solutions , Joss Collective, Visitors Center
