You’ve heard the buzz of big retailers gearing up for Black Friday, the day calculated to put their books back in the black, but have you heard of Small Business Saturday? Come on out November 30th and be a part of the bottom line of your community.
We’ll be marking the event at our shop all day long. Our stretch of Minnehaha Avenue is a perfect example of the delightful diversity of small businesses: in just a few blocks, there’s a bookstore, a microbrewery, secondhand shops, a pizza parlor, a bike shop, artist studios, and lots more, including our coffee shop. Stop in for a treat while you’re doing errands, or to pick up a piece of equipment for that coffee fanatic on your list.
In honor of small, local and hopefully our first snowfall, we are doing an early release of our much-anticipated winter seasonal coffee, the Snowshoe Brew. It won’t be available anywhere else until Monday Dec. 2nd, but for folks who visit us on Small Business Saturday, we’ll be offering a first taste of it from 9 am to 2 pm. You can also buy a 12 oz bag here before it arrives anywhere else in town.
And if Minneapolis is a little too far for you to visit, odds are good that your hometown has some great neighborhood businesses too. Get out, say hi to your neighbors, and help support vibrant local economies everywhere!
