Shop Local, Shop Small on Small Business Saturday in South City

South San Francisco, CA      November 24, 2015 

The holidays are upon us and everyone is vying for your hard earned dollars and you want to make the most of your savings. So join in on Small Business Saturday and get a jump on your shopping and support our South City small businesses because they support us all year long. Why spoil family time on Thanksgiving or ‘Black Friday’ when you can come on down to Grand Avenue on Saturday and enjoy free parking and get to know our downtown once again. There are so many new businesses and the buzz that is going on is for real.

This is the 4th year Everything South City has worked to promote our local small business on this specific date that was created 5 years ago in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales. We know it is our local shops that sponsor our kids sports teams, donate to our community raffles, hire us and our family and friends. Did you know that for every $100 spent in locally owned stores $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll taxes, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain only $34 stays local. Spend it online and NOTHING COMES HOME. {{source Project 3/50)

THAT is why we rally this Small Business Saturday – it benefits us all. What three independently owned business would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around!

The City of South San Francisco is supporting our efforts once again by providing FREE parking so you have the time to linger and check out the old and the new. If you know you’re going to hang out for a while, check out the new parking structure on Miller – free parking there too and conveniently located mid-Grand off of Miller. Meet up with friends at one of our new cafes or eateries. Go get a massage or facial at Luminous Day Spa.

This year we are proud to support and showcase some of our previous SBS partners and new ones too. We try to pick a dozen local small businesses that have really gone that extra mile in the past year, not an easy task when we have so many amazing small businesses that deserve – and need!- our patronage!
