For Shoppers: Shop Small on Saturday, November 24th

Saturday, November 24, 2018 is Small Business Saturday® – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.

In recognition of Small Business Saturday many downtown businesses are participating in the 4th annual Re-Discover Downtown Williamsport through our Shop Small Passport Program. This two week-long event gives consumers the opportunity to shop downtown using a Shop Small Passport and enter for a chance to win tons of great prizes. All you need to do is take your passport with you and have your passport stamped by eight of our awesome local businesses, drop your card off at any participating location by December 9th and you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win gift cards, jewelry, clothing, handbags, and other items donated by each participating small business! Three lucky winners will be chosen at random to win a basket of prizes!

  • Starting November 24th, just bring your passport to any of our participating shops
  • Make sure to drop it off after it's completed by December 15th
  • The raffle winners will be announced on December 19th.

Be sure and visit any of our local retailers that are participated in this event to learn more or to get your passport. Passports can also be downloaded and printed at home by visiting this link.

For Business Owners: The Shop Small Passport Project

We are excitedly gearing up for our fourth annual Shop Small Passport kickoff celebrating Small Business Saturday in the Williamsport community! If you have participated with us in the past, we would love for you to join us again this year. If you have not participated previously, we’d love to have you join in the fun as we expand our reach to several new businesses this year.

The benefits of participating in the Shop Small Passport are two-fold: Not only are you promoting your business and fostering a strong sense of community spirit, but each business that donates a prize promotes future continuing business, and reaches potential new local shoppers and clientele. Each passport contains the names and addresses of all participating businesses, and shoppers must visit eight unique locations to acquire their stamps. Prizes can be anything; Small items, gift cards, t-shirts, etc.! Now is a great time to get creative in promoting your business!

How it works:

  • November 9 - Deadline for business enrollment and prize submissions. This will help us to promote the event and participating businesses far ahead of Small Business Saturday!
  • small passports and start stamping for visitors to your business!
    • Beginning December 15 - Completed passport pick-up by WBA
  • November 17-21 - Packets including instructions, passports, stamps, and some signage will be distributed to participants. We highly recommend making this a fun and exciting experience for your regular customers! Printable signage is available at
    https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/shop-small/promote and a limited amount of promotional materials will be available through the WBA (first come, first served!)
  • November 24 - Small Business Saturday - Encourage customers to use shop small passports and start stamping for purchases in your shop!
  • Beginning December 15th - Completed Passport pick-up by WBA.
  • December 19 - Winners will be announced and contacted! Yay!

Thanks small businesses for your participation this year!
