The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) is coordinating the Shop Small Saturday celebration on Saturday, November 26, 2022. Stores will be open and have specials throughout Mount Vernon and Lisbon from 9AM to 5PM each day.
Each Shop Small Saturday will include a sign-up fishbowl event, where shoppers are encouraged to stop by Shop Small HQ, fill out a form with a cell phone number before they begin shopping. At the top of every hour, volunteers will reach into the fishbowl and call one registered shopper via cell phone. If the shopper can get back to the fishbowl in 10 minutes, they will receive $25 in Community Cash good for any business in Mount Vernon and Lisbon. At the bottom of the hour on both days, prizes and gifts from local retailers also will be given away.
Blooming Acres Florist and Gifts, Helios Stitches n Stuff, Room 222, School House Antiques and The Green Door will be open in the First Street Community Center from 9AM to 5PM each day.
