Margate’s Spectacular Shop Small Weekend
November 26 - November 28
The Margate City business & restaurant districts celebrate Shop Small Business Weekend, Nov. 26-28 by offering sales, discounts & contests for shoppers, and a visit from America Sign Language Santa. “This year, it’s more important than ever to support local businesses, whether shoppers buy in person, online or purchase gift cards,” said Margate Business Association board member Michael Collins of Colmar Home Center. “The MBA is safely bringing some energy and fun to town with ASL Santa and lots of contests to enhance everyone’s shopping experience at all of our small businesses that we value so much.”

What is Shop Small: In the midst of the recession in 2010 — Small Business Saturday® was created by American Express on the
Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses. In 2011, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution in support of the day, and officials in all 50 states participate. It even gets a shout-out from the president of the United States. Who knew that in 2020 we’d face one of the most devastating national health crises in our lifetime. Small Businesses were once again thrown a curve ball as our nation battled the after effects of a national “shut down” during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Small Movement is more relevant then ever. If you cannot shop in person, please consider purchasing virtual gift cards by contacting your favorite local retailers, professionals or restaurants.
