Celebrate Small Business Saturday in Downtown Norfolk
There is plenty of opportunity to buy local and unique in Downtown Norfolk all year, and this holiday season, our small businesses need your support more than ever. Join us on November 27 in celebrating our beloved small, local retailers and join in the Shop Small movement with Small Business Saturday!
Why shop local? Each dollar you spend at an independent business returns three times more money to our local economy than one dollar spent at a chain!
At Selden Market you can find the best gifts that support small local businesses. A one-of-a-kind experience in a historic venue, the market gives a home to inspired shops from Norfolk’s up and coming retailers and restauranteurs. There’s no place better to shop small and hyper-local.
Poinsettia and Fresh Wreath Market
Downtown Norfolk Council is holding a fresh Poinsettia and Wreath Market from 10am-1pm (or until sellout) on the Federal Plaza on Granby Street as part of the Small Business Saturday festivities. Stop by to pick up beautiful, fresh wreaths and poinsettias in a variety of colors to welcome the holiday season and to support the Downtown Norfolk Council.
Dinner On You
You can’t go wrong with a restaurant gift certificate as a holiday gift. Give a gift certificate from one of the many independent and local Downtown restaurants.
The Mall Has It All
We are so lucky to have MacArthur Center in Downtown to cover all your shopping needs, anchored by Dillard's and with an ever-growing collection of small and independent boutique shops.
Get It on Granby
Once lined with Norfolk’s iconic department stores, Granby Street is now home to unique retail and independent, local restaurants. The historic buildings hold great opportunities for gift inspiration from retailers like Prince Ink (whose online store is currently open) and Urban Outfitters.
