For Business Owners: The Shop Small Passport Project

We are excitedly gearing up for our third 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 4 - Deadline for business enrollment and prize submissions. This will help us to promote the event and participating businesses far ahead of Small Business Saturday!
  • November 18 - 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 25 - Small Business Saturday - Encourage customers to use shop small passports and start stamping for purchases in your shop!
  • December 9 - Passport pick-up at the end of the business day.
  • December 15 - Winners will be announced and contacted! Yay!

Interested parties can submit this form below to participate, or call us at (570) 478-0420, for further information. We’re looking forward to another GREAT year with you!

For Shoppers: Shop Small on Saturday, November 25th

Saturday, November 25, 2017 is Small Business Saturday® – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.

Three lucky winners will be chosen at random to win a basket of prizes!

  • Starting November 25th, just bring your passport to any of our participating shops
  • Make sure to drop it off after it's completed by December 9th
