Leadville News – November 25
It’s #ShopSmall Saturday in Leadville Today
Get those lists out and remember you don’t have to go any farther than historic Harrison Avenue to support #SmallBusinessSaturday, and #ShopSmall. Locals and visitors will also have another chance to support Leadville artists and craftspeople on Saturday, Nov. 25. Hosted by the Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the City of Leadville’s local program to support businesses on Leadville’s main street, today’s event is intended to encourage shoppers to keep their dollars in town.
“We will have a booth welcome station set up at the Visitor Center parking lot,” explains Leadville’s Administrative Services Manager Sarah Dallas. “Shoppers can pick up tote bags and Shop Leadville SWAG, learn about business specials in the community, and get a passport to be entered to win a Leadville gift basket.”
At the welcome station from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. visitors can pick up special shopping “Passports,” which once stamped with the official requirements, will enter them into the BIG drawing. In order to qualify, according to Dallas, shoppers will have to show three gift shop or store purchases, as well as one food or beverage purchase.
The aim of the “Shop Small” program is to encourage locals and visitors to SHOP LEADVILLE and make it their destination for the holiday season. For more information, contact the chamber at 719-486-3900. For those wishing to participate, The Visitor Center is located at 809 Harrison Avenue, across from Leadville City Hall.
