Shop Small in the Orlando Main Streets!
Holiday shopping season is upon us! What better way to find a unique and one-of-a-kind gift for everyone on your shopping list than to shop small? In honor of Small Business Saturday, Mayor Dyer and the City of Orlando invite all residents on Saturday, November 26 to make a conscious decision to patronize the small, locally-owned businesses in our community – many of which are located in our Downtown and Orlando Main Streets Districts.
Shopping small not only helps you check off your holiday gift list, but it is also a way to give the gift of opportunity to our City. The City’s thriving small business community provides much-needed goods and services and drive our local economy by creating new jobs and opportunities, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for residents.
Below is a list of Small Business Saturday events and promotions in the Orlando Main Street districts:
