“Small Business Saturday is my personal favorite day of the year to go shopping,” said Director of Business Opportunity Manny Dominguez.” We are excited to support this initiative for the third year in a row.”
Shop Small Savannah will have a tent in Ellis Square with information on participating businesses, coupons, shopping bags and trolley rides by Old Savannah Tours tailored to small business shoppers.
