On Small Business Saturday 2021, November 27th, Arlington and Falls Church shoppers will get a chance to participate in a shopping “Passport” program to discover unique shops, find deals, keep their shopping dollars local and be eligible to win prizes.
Led by One More Page Books, the Passport enables shoppers who are looking to participate in the national #shoplocal effort to easily discover small businesses near them.
“We loved creating this program in 2019 and missed doing it again last year because of Covid,” said One More Page Books owner, Eileen McGervey. “Small Business Saturday is an important day every year to our business and to many others in Arlington and Falls Church. All of the stores and restaurants participating in the Passport program hope to see many familiar faces as well as new customers who get to discover our local businesses on the 27th.”
Customers can pick up the Passport at any of the participating businesses. Many of the businesses will also be running special deals on Nov. 27th. To be eligible to win one of three Grand Prize Baskets of goods and gift certificates, customers need to collect “stamps” from at least five of the participating businesses on Nov. 27th. Once completed, the Passports can be dropped off at One More Page Books, or they can be left at the last participating business customers visit that day. Winners of the baskets will be randomly drawn from all completed Passports on Sunday, Nov. 28th at 3pm at One More Page Books and notified via email.
