— an announcement from Darien Chamber of Commerce
Get your calendar out and save this day for you and your loved ones to enjoy your town! Come celebrate the uniqueness of shopping in Darien! 98 percent of our shops and restaurants are owned locally!
There are many benefits to shopping and dining locally:
~Darien’s “one-of-a-kind” shops give Darien a distinctive character.
~Shopping locally is social! See friends, be with family, get advice to make great purchases for your family, yourself and your friends!
~Our local businesses generously donate goods and services to our local non-profits and schools year after year. Shopping locally helps keep our community strong!
~Locally owned businesses are the ones that give our teens and students their first jobs and internships! We need them to be strong so our students can be successful!
~Shopping locally uses less gas, is convenient and friendly!
~ Many of our locally owned businesses will have specials for shoppers on Saturday, Nov. 25 — a great reason to visit a favorite store or discover something new in town! Go to the Darien Chamber of Commerce website for a list of participating retailers — click on Shop Small Saturday-Nov. 25.
American Express sponsors Shop Small Saturday and will be rewarding purchases made with a AE Card at participating merchants by delivering 2x rewards during the promotion.
