Where to Shop on Small Business Saturday

The holiday shopping season is sure to look and feel a bit different this year. But, while it may be tempting to avoid shops altogether and do all of your gift-buying online, there’s more reason than ever this year to get out and about on Small Business Saturday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, small businesses around the area will roll out the sales and the welcome mat for holiday shoppers. With the pandemic hitting independently owned shops especially hard, the holiday rush will be the vital boost that many need. And luckily, there are plenty of small businesses to support right near your The Isle apartment.

This Small Business Saturday, don’t just pick one shop—but come out to Main Street for Manayunk.com’s Small Business Saturday event, a full day of shopping and sales, all in support of the local community. More than 50 merchants are participating, including the many artisan businesses along Main Street, as well as restaurants and bars, where you can stop for some discounted dishes in between your shopping. Snag a spa gift card from 1859 Wellness Spa & Salon, just one block from your The Isle apartment—an ideal gift for Mom or your special someone. Just as close is Latitudes and Longitudes, where you can get everything from jewelry to kids’ toys to Philly-focused décor and artwork. Bring along your packages for a quick drink and bite at SOMO, just one block from your The Isle apartment, which features a wide range of starters, salads and sandwiches, along with an extensive selection of craft beers and signature cocktails.

Small Business Saturday in Manayunk is also the official kickoff to the holiday season, with hot cocoa sold along Main Street, carolers, the lighting of the neighborhood holiday tree and a visit from Santa Claus. While the event may look and feel a bit different this year, with lots of space for social distancing and masks required, this season more than ever, Small Business Saturday is a great time to say thanks to the merchants who could use our support.
