Local Shops Participating in Small Business Saturday

The Tubby Olive, Newtown Bookshop, Sweet Pea and Learning Express are participating in Small Business Saturday.

Across the country, Small Business Saturday has become a day during the holiday shopping season that puts the spotlight on locally-owned businesses.

Hosted by American Express and sponsored by FedExClear Channel and many other corporate supporters, the third annual Small Business Saturday will be held tomorrow, Nov. 24. The aim is to help small businesses generate exposure and business during the biggest shopping season of the year.

Last year, more than 100 million people pledged to "Shop Small," by visiting brick-and-mortar shops in their neighborhoods and American Express estimates this year's turnout will be even greater.

Here are some Newtown shops that are participating. (If you are a local business owner and don't see your shop on the list, share your Small Business Saturday deals in the comments section of this article.)

  • From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, Newtown Bookshop will offer 20 percent off all hardcovers and 10 percent of all other books. The store will also be offering its new eReader, the Kobo mini, for $49. 
  • Sweet Pea will offer 10 percent off Stonewall Kitchen specialty foods on a purchase of $20. It will have extended hours from 9 am until 10:30 p.m.
  • The Tubby Olive will offer free food samples and olive oil and balsamic tastings, plus a gift raffle and 10 percent off all gifts.
  • Bucks County Beads will be offering a 20 percent discount on a total purchase all day.
  • Learning Express Toys will reward shoppers with a $25 American Express credit on purchases of $25 or more.
