The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as Small Business Saturday, an event that encourages people to get more Christmas shopping into small businesses in their community. Here are a few ways to celebrate shopping in a small way:
Encinitas Chamber launches “Surfy the Snowman” campaign to highlight local businesses
The Encinitas Chamber of Commerce is supporting small businesses with a new holiday campaign to encourage people to shop, eat and entertain locally this holiday season.
In recognition of Small Business Saturday on November 26, the Chamber will be distributing a digital coupon booklet linked to discounts and special offers exclusive to Chamber members. The book will be available at the Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center stand next November 20thEncinitas Street Festival. It will also be promoted through the Chamber’s newsletter and social media pages.
To highlight local businesses, the chamber is also launching a “Surfy the Snowman” campaign inspired by “Elf on the Shelf.” Surfy the Snowman’s vacation adventures will be posted twice a week in local locations on the Chamber’s Facebook and Instagram pages from November 26 through December 17. Each post will highlight a chamber member’s business and announce a $25 gift certificate giveaway.
To qualify for the giveaway, participants must follow both the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce page and the participating business, like the post, and tag a friend. All entrants will also be entered into a Grand Prize Draw for an overnight stay at Alila Marea Beach Resort on December 21st.
“The Encinitas Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center has been supporting our local businesses for over 60 years,” said Sherry Yardley, CEO of the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, in a press release. “We’re excited to bring this celebratory campaign to Encinitas stores and hope to increase traffic and sales to them during this important shopping season.”
