Kick off Black Friday by Shopping Local in support of our Greater Newburyport retailers! Many local businesses are running Black Friday Sales in order to incent shoppers to make as many local purchases as possible. Take advantage of local sales and promotions and feel good knowing that every local purchase is greatly appreciated by our small business owners. Newburyport.com is committed to promoting SHOP LOCAL throughout the year and is asking everyone to please visit our local shops before making major online purchases. “Collectively, we can help make a difference!” If everyone in our community makes just a few more local purchases this holiday season, we can make a significant positive impact for our local small business owners. Plus there are many new local businesses that you’re likely to discover!
In addition to Black Friday Sales, many local retailers are also running great promotions and sales on Small Business Saturday. Check out the, “Keep it Local” promotions. There are also businesses using Black Friday and Small Business Saturday to raise money for local nonprofits. Ganesh Imports is donating 10% of sales for the entire weekend to our local food pantries.
If you discover a shop that isn’t offering Black Friday Sales, you may want to check and see if they happen to offer a discount as part of the the Newburyport VIP Card Discount Program. The foundation of this community based loyalty program is to reward customers with small discounts as a thank you for shopping local! Participating businesses have the flexibility to choose their own discount, in order to ensure that the offer works with their margins, helping to drive profitable business and encourages customer loyalty. VIP Card Discounts offered by each participating business are meant to be small because card holders have the opportunity to receive substantial savings if they use their card at multiple businesses throughout the course of the year. VIP Card Discounts are not able to be combined with other discounts or promotions so if you prefer to take advantage of a Black Friday Sale, you can’t use the VIP Card discount on that same purchase.
If you’re a fan of shopping events, make sure to visit Newburyport for the annual holiday shopping Invitation Nights on Fridays in December. Although the Newburyport downtown shopping is very popular during the holiday season, make sure visit the Tannery Marketplace as well as our great local retailers in the shopping center and industrial park areas. You are certain to find Black Friday Sales at retailers in downtown Amesbury, Salisbury and many other local towns and cities surrounding Newburyport as well. Support Local throughout the Community!
