Small Business Saturday

Head to Downtown Morgantown and Find Something for Everyone on Your List!

While many look forward to the delicious Thanksgiving dinner feast, some look forward to the shopping that comes after! Whether or not you participate in Black Friday shopping, you should join in on the fun and shop local on Small Business Saturday–and we have just the place for you to do just that!

Head to Main Street Morgantown in Greater Morgantown on Saturday, November 30 from 10:00am to 4:00pm to promote the unique, local shops. You don’t have to worry about parking, either! Starting November 27 at 6pm until December 1 at 6am, Downtown Morgantown is offering free parking compliments of the merchants.

Individuals can browse through local boutiques for some of the best West Virginia and West Virginia University themed gifts, jewelry, clothing, décor, and more!

Enjoy shopping with friends and family for the holiday season at local retailers, all the while exploring Downtown Morgantown. Then, be sure to stop by Arts Monongahela from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on High Street for fun giveaways that equal up to $500 in prizes and to snap your children’s pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and shop from local artists and artisans stationed in the gallery.

You can also participate in the Wreath Decorating Contest. Pick up your ballots at Arts Monongahela from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and drop off your completed ballot at Arts Monongahela on Saturday by 4:00 p.m. or you can drop off to Tanner’s Alley Leather Design Studio or Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) by 4:00 p.m. Saturday, December 10. (The contest runs from November 30 thru December 10. )

Be sure to bring the family to the historic Metropolitan Theatre for a free showing of The Grinch this Small Business Saturday to really get in the holiday spirit! Movie snacks and beverage essentials will be for sale on site.

Also, head to the Old Stone House Gift Shop for extended hours on Black Friday from 11:00am to 7:00pm and on Small Business Saturday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. It’s filled with a wide array of holiday gifts and decorations, for all of your family and friends (and maybe even a little something for yourself)!
