In Science and Space: Businesses in the Morgantown area are getting ready to open for the busiest shopping weekends of the year.
Anyone shopping in downtown Morgantown, in particular, could expect a number of sales and family-friendly events that will start at 11 a.m. and last for the most of Saturday, according to Deputy Mayor Danielle Trumble.
Local customers will be moving throughout the Morgantown region after Black Friday to take advantage of offers offered as part of Small Business Saturday.
There is a lot going on downtown, Trumble noted. “Businesses are offering specials, I know there are local craftsmen, a vintage market, book signings, etc.
There are lots of people present, promotions are being offered, and goodie bags and drinks are being given away, according to Swain. There is a lot going on, and it’s a great time, she remarked.
Little Businesses Saturday is regarded as a significant economic driver for neighbourhood businesses. Even for locally owned businesses with greater brand recognition, the shopping holiday can directly contribute up to 65% of revenues. There will be many opportunities to purchase some really cool gifts for the holidays thanks to their fantastic events, according to Swain.
