Small Business Saturday from American Express is Nov. 27th
“If you’re looking for holiday spirit in Yelm this year, it won’t be hard to find. From a winter market and Selfie Spots to a “Keep the Cheer Here” campaign to support local businesses, the season will be in full swing as of November 27, also known as Small Business Saturday. Yelm Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Line Roy hopes Yelm shoppers will take advantage of the many specials and promotions local companies are offering and make Yelm their first stop when it comes to holiday shopping.
““Keep the Cheer Here” will run from November 27 through December 22. Anyone who shops at a local small business can submit their receipt to the chamber for a chance to have their entire purchase of up to $200 reimbursed. Drawings will happen once a week. “We did this last year and had a ton of entries,” says Roy. “It was really fun.” Local shoppers can also win prizes by posting a photo of themselves at one of the many Selfie Spots at businesses around town.”
