Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday:

November 30, 3019

Support local businesses in Mansfield and "Shop Small" during the holidays - and all year long!

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership invites Mansfield residents and friends to start their holiday shopping on the local level this Saturday for Small Business Saturday. Many Mansfield businesses will be ready to welcome shoppers with sales and specials.

Shoppers are encouraged to show their love of Mansfield businesses with a “Shop Small Selfie!” Take a picture of yourself shopping at a participating business, post it on social media, and tag the business and #ShopSmallMansfield.

As part of the Small Business Saturday celebration, the Town of Mansfield will offer free parking in the Downtown Storrs garage from Thanksgiving through Saturday, November 30.

Remember to bring your reusable shopping bags! The Town of Mansfield's "Bring Your Own Bag" ordinance, which went into effect in September, prohibits businesses from providing plastic checkout bags.
