Small Business Season

aka “Where’s Albert?”

We love participating in Small Business Saturday every year and seeing how the community comes together to support our downtown businesses. This year, celebrating for just one day doesn’t seem enough, so we’ve decided to create an entire season-long celebration. Starting on November 1st (this weekend!), we will be hosting a giveaway through the end of 2020 with a winner each week!

How it works:

Participating stores downtown will have a little albino peacock (our beloved Albert!) ornament that they hide somewhere on the visible part of their store. Customers may browse the stores looking for Albert, and at checkout, tell the cashier where they found him. If correct, the cashier will stamp the customer’s receipt. The customer then submits THREE stamped receipts to the BCBA to be entered in one of 8 drawings that will happen throughout the season. Each winner will win a $100 gift certificate to a downtown business of their choice!

Find Albert!
