Also, on that day, we are bringing Santa and distributing “Shop Small” giveaways to shoppers from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. outside the Citibank at 885 Flatbush Ave. (corner of Church Ave.). We’ve ordered additional freebies and store decorations for the BID’s businesses…contact us asap if you would like items dropped off at your business (while supplies last)!
So mark your calendar for Nov. 25 — the Saturday after Thanksgiving — and get ready to Shop Small in the Flatbush Ave. BID.
You can help get the word out and celebrate Small Business Saturday by using #shopsmall on Facebook and all your social networks.
