Decatur, GA — People looking for an alternative to Black Friday shopping have an opportunity on Nov. 28 to support the local economy.

Nov. 28 will be Small Business Saturday, an event created by the American Express credit card company. Local retailers will be offering special deals and in Decatur, Santa will drop by for an early visit.

The Santa parade starts at 11 a.m.

“Santa is coming to town and will travel along several major streets in a Decatur fire engine, spreading holiday cheer. Remember to wear your mask and remain socially distant, while waiting for Santa to roll by,” the city announced.

Avondale Estates also is promoting the event.

“Let’s work together to empower business owners and encourage our communities to share joy and Shop Small safely all season long,” an announcement from the city says.

Local businesses who wish to promote local deals this weekend may do so by posting comments on this article or by posting promotions in our Decaturish Readers’ Lounge Facebook group. Normally, promotional material in the group is restricted to advertisers but Decaturish is suspending that rule this weekend and all local businesses will be able to promote their deals through Nov. 30. To visit the Facebook group, click here.

Any business interested in supporting Decaturish this year can contact [email protected]. We will work with all small businesses on a rate that meets your needs and budgets. To see our media kit, click here.
