The Riverside Chamber of Commerce is encouraging shoppers and service seekers to patronize their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy on Saturday, Nov. 26. “Small Business Saturday” was created in 2010 to rally holiday shoppers to patronize local, small businesses with as much enthusiasm as they give the big box stores on Black Friday. 

Look for special offers and discounts throughout town, such as a 10% discount on purchases at Funky Monkey and Arcade Jewelers; 10% off all candles at Coveny Lane; a free Chicago Mustang T-Shirt with the purchase of every season ticket at, and more. Relax with a meal and drinks at one of our restaurants or get your grocery shopping done at Riverside Foods where you can enter for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card. 

Additionally, the Chamber will be selling commemorative Holiday Stroll ornaments in Centennial Park from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. during the Tree Trimming. The ornaments are $10 each and come with $5 in Chamber Bucks, redeemable at most local businesses.

The 2nd Annual Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses in communities like ours on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

When we all shop small, it will be huge.
