Delhi Area Events & Shopping Specials on Saturday, November 26th.

Small Business Saturday is a movement encouraging people to shop at small local businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. An alternative option to big-box chains and online retail giants, the powerful message of the holiday is to support local entrepreneurs and keep their brick and mortar businesses alive. By doing so, we help energize local economy, keeping it viable and beneficial to all. 

We're so proud of all the unique small businesses here in the Greater Delhi Area. We benefit so much as a community from the creators, the makers, the crafters, the farmers and the artists who shape and contribute so much to the economy and the vibrancy of this region. Through their work and efforts, we form our identity and pride.
