Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is an annual, national event held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, during which consumers are encouraged to reinvest in the small businesses that add character and tax revenue to their towns. On Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season, we hope you will please consider supporting local businesses as you decide on the perfect gifts for friends and family.

Skip the Black Friday mania, and indulge in a slower, more thoughtful shopping experience at Main Street Books, where we’re offering the following:

  • Donuts!

    • We’ll have free gourmet mini donuts from 9:30 until supplies last (which won’t be long)

  • Recommendation Station!

    • Looking for the perfect present for that hard-to-shop-for person on your gift-giving list? WE’VE GOT YOU. Get a personalized recommendation from our store’s daylong recommendation station, staffed by our most seasoned booksellers and avid readers.

  • Swag!

    • Earn a Main Street Books bumper sticker when you spend more than $50.

    • Earn a “Local and Independent” tote bag when you spend more than $150.

    • Earn a free month of our Matchbox subscription program when you spend more than $225.
