Small Business Saturday!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving--known nationally as Small Business Saturday--evolved in response to the mob scenes at shopping malls on "Black Friday." It's intended to remind people that shopping small and shopping local is the civilized--and usually much more fun--alternative to getting trampled in a chain store or clicking on some monster-retailer's website "deals." 

It also keeps your holiday dollars in your local community. At independent bookstores across the country, it's traditionally a time to invite authors into the store and do a little celebrating so we invite you to join us for that. And we'll also be part of the annual Downtown Evanston Cookie Crawl and other fantastic incentives to shop with our fellow small Evanston businesses!

Event date: 
Saturday, November 25, 2017 - 10:00am to 7:00pm
