The City of Fairfax, Fairfax City’s Economic Development Authority, and the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce are partnering together to organize a holiday shopping event to make Small Business Saturday not so small.
Small Business Saturday is a national tradition that celebrates the beginning of the holiday season. In Fairfax, Small Business Saturday celebrates the small and independent businesses that call Fairfax City home. When you shop small and local, you are supporting our city and its unique neighborhoods. Shopping local directly supports our city.
That’s why – November 24th and 25th – we want you to get out and shop local with our Fairfax City-opoly game. Make a purchase at 5 of the participating businesses and each business will stamp your game board for a chance to win a $600 cash prize and $100 gift card to Twin’s Ace Hardware, Fairfax. You can also visit 10 of the participating businesses to be eligible for a $300 cash prize.
Once your board game is stamped with either purchases from 5 stores or visits to 10 stores, submit it to our Fairfax City’s Office of Economic Development at 10455 Armstrong Street, #316, Fairfax, VA, 22030 or email it to EconomicDevelopment@fairfaxva.gov by Friday, November 30. The winner will be announced on Monday, December 3 on fairfaxcityconnected.com and the Economic Development Authority’s Facebook page at facebook.com/FairfaxCityEDA/.
Don’t forget to visit our Welcome Station on Saturday, November 24 from 9:30 am till 1:30 pm at Old Town Square, 10415 North Street, Fairfax, VA 22030. The Welcome Station festivities will be marked by our Fairfax City Economic Development Authority tent. Pick up this year’s Shop Small® tote bag and Fairfax City –opoly game board, enjoy local treats, take pictures in our photo booth, and receive a $5.00 voucher to Fairfax City businesses while supplies last. #shopsmallfairfaxcity #shopsmall
