Emmaus Main Street Partners Shines a Spotlight on Small Business Saturday 2023

EMMAUS, PA — Emmaus Main Street Partners is thrilled to announce its 2023 Small Business Saturday initiative to support our local businesses on Saturday, November 25, 2023. Small Business Saturday is a nationwide initiative that celebrates and supports the heartbeat of our communities – local businesses.

A proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, Emmaus Main Street Partners is dedicated to promoting and uplifting local staples in the community through this annual event. The goal is simple: encourage people to Shop Small and bring more of their holiday shopping to the small businesses that give our community its unique character.

In the spirit of this mission, Emmaus Main Street Partners and First Commonwealth Credit Union proudly present “Small Business Saturday 2023.” This year, the organization is stepping up its efforts to showcase and promote the diverse range of local businesses that make Emmaus a special place to live and shop.

This year, for Small Business Saturday, Emmaus Main Street Partners will launch a website featuring all participating local businesses. The website will highlight all the specials and promotions businesses will offer on November 25th. This will allow community members and local shoppers to access all local deals in one place. Look out for flyers distributed throughout the community and inside participating businesses.

Small Business Saturday is a perfect opportunity for Emmaus residents and visitors to explore, shop, and support the local businesses that are the backbone of our community. By participating in this event, small businesses can increase their visibility and connect with customers who appreciate the value of local commerce.

Newly added this year, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Valley Partners will host a free Shop Local Swag Bag pickup. Attendees can stop by Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Valley Partners to pick up Shop Small giveaways and learn more about this local initiative. Swag bags will be available from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at 232 Main Street. Bags are limited, so don’t delay! Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Valley Partners will also be accepting food donations for the Emmaus Rotary Club as well as teen hygiene items and gift cards for The Kindness Project. Details for donation drop off and Swag Bag pickup can be found at LehighValleyChamber.org/EmmausSBS.

“Our community knows and appreciates the added value of these local businesses in our town. Our goal for this initiative is to provide a simple, easy way to access all your favorite shop’s promotions for Small Business Saturday. And perhaps help people to discover a few new favorite establishments as well!” stated Sarah Yost, Assistant Manager, Emmaus Main Street Partners & Affiliated Chambers. “We are excited to see the community turn out to shop and support local, and the direct economic impact this will have on Emmaus and surrounding areas.”

Small Business Saturday 2023 in Emmaus is made possible by our local business supporters through sponsorship. Partnerships like these help this initiative be free and accessible to all our businesses and community members. Presenting Sponsor, First Commonwealth Credit Union had this to say about this partnership; “We’re thrilled to work with the Emmaus Main Street Partners for Small Business Saturday!” stated Lisa Deutsch, CCUFC VP, Director of Community and Employer Partner Development. “At First Commonwealth, we’re all about doing good in our community and giving back. We believe we can – and should – have a positive impact on the communities we serve. We’re proud to help represent and support the many small businesses of Emmaus through this great event!”
