Think Big, Shop Small…

Community Encouraged to Visit the Urban Core during Small Business Saturday

The Downtown Sacramento Partnership, DOCO (Downtown Commons), Midtown Association, R Street Partnership, City of Sacramento and the Sacramento Regional Transit District (SacRT) are once again joining efforts to share exciting information about a variety of special Small Business Saturday activities, offerings and amenities available for holiday shoppers on Saturday, November 24, 2018.

Helping to make shopping in Sacramento’s urban core even more fun and convenient than ever, the City of Sacramento is offering free metered parking on Small Business Saturday (and on weekdays after 4:30 p.m. and all day on weekends through December 25, 2018).

Back by popular demand, SacRT is offering free “shopping shuttle” service (with stops/pick-ups every 20 minutes) that will operate from 9:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. and take shoppers throughout midtown, the Alhambra corridor, downtown, along R Street and in Old Sacramento on Saturday, November 24, 2018 only. The free shopping shuttles will also stop near popular community events and destinations such as the Midtown Farmers Market, DOCO Plaza, Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink, Macy’s Theatre of Lights and the Old Sacramento Waterfront.

Part of the year-round Shop Small concept, Small Business Saturday is highlighted as a special day to celebrate the ongoing effort to help local communities thrive. To get started, shoppers are encouraged to stop by one of the three Small Business Saturday “Welcome Stations” to pick up complimentary canvas tote bags. Plus, many businesses in the central city have special activities planned on Small Business Saturday, a sampling of which follows:
