#ShopSmallCelina: Local shops prepped for Small Business Saturday Nov. 25

Shop Small Celina

This Thanksgiving weekend, shoppers are encouraged to make a positive impact on the community by shopping or dining at your favorite local places on Nov. 25 during Small Business Saturday.

In 2010, American Express launched an effort to support local businesses and community with Small Business Saturday taking place the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Since then, the movement has grown and takes place in neighborhoods in all 50 states.

This year, Celina is an approved Neighborhood Champion tasked with bringing community and businesses together. Visit small business shops and restaurants in Celina on Nov. 25 and pick up a shop small tote bag filled with coupons while supplies last.

While taking advantage of those coupons, the public is invited to take selfies of their favorite Celina businesses and post on Facebook or Instragram with the hashtag #ShopSmallCelina (make sure posts are public) for a chance to win a prize.
