Update 11-19-2019: This story pertains to Small Business Saturday 2018. Click here to read about 2019 Belmar holiday events.
When you shop small in Belmar, New Jersey, on Small Business Saturday you could be one of two lucky shoppers to take home a $100 gift card to a Belmar business of your choice. The gift cards are being given away by the Belmar Business Partnership (BBP) in support of its Small Business Saturday Town-Wide Sale on November 24 to encourage area residents to shop local in the community this holiday season.
During the Belmar Small Business Saturday Town-Wide Sale, participating Belmar businesses will be offering a variety of shopping specials and discounts, as well as giving away free raffle tickets for the gift card drawings. Shoppers can drop off their tickets at Don’s Pizza King, 811 Main Street, to enter the raffle. The prize drawings will take place at Don’s at 8 p.m. on November 24. Winners will be notified by the BBP, so you do not need to be present at the drawing to win.
This Small Business Saturday shopping event is being organized by Pat Tecza, chair of the BBP’s Retail Programs Committee and owner of Nostalgic Nonsense Vintage Clothing, which has served the local community for over 30 years.
