Shop small. Support local. Come join downtown Springville on Black Friday, Nov. 24 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Small Business Saturday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. for another festive weekend with friends, food, shopping, and prizes at A Very Merry Main Street.

Sure, you can spend your time fighting the long lines at the department stores, but close to home, your friends and neighbors who own small businesses are opening their doors and providing special deals for their customers that you will only find over Thanksgiving weekend.

In addition to getting gifts checked off your list, shoppers who participate in A Very Merry Main Street have a chance to win prizes from the local merchants during this event.

Local merchants that are not located on Main Street will be set up inside the Lucy Bensley Center and other locations offering a wider variety of local goodness to choose from this season.

Are you a small business interested in participating? A Very Merry Main Street is still looking for vendors (including home based businesses!) Contact for more information.

Follow A Very Merry Main Street on Facebook to get updates on participating businesses.
