Small Business Saturday

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 26 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!

Shop Small

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. 

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 and Urban Outfitters

Main Street Merchandise

Main Street is home to everyone’s favorite local bookstore Prince Books (celebrating 38 years in Downtown!) and the recently renovated and full stocked VisitNorfolk’s Mermaid Market.
