West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and City of West Hollywood Team-Up with Local Businesses to Encourage Everyone to ‘Shop Small for WeHo’ on Small Business Saturday, November 30
As the holiday shopping season moves in to full-swing, the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (WHCC) and the City of West Hollywood are encouraging people in the community to “shop small” by supporting locally owned businesses.
West Hollywood’s Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday, November 30, 2019. Residents and visitors are encouraged to join millions of consumers across the nation and “shop small” on the first shopping Saturday after Thanksgiving. Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 in response to independent business owners’ challenges to compete with big-box stores’ advertising budgets to drive customers through their doors during the holiday shopping season. Shoppers in West Hollywood can stroll the streets of the City’s Design District, Robertson Boulevard, Melrose Avenue, Santa Monica Boulevard, or the Sunset Strip, among other prime retail spots in the City. A list of participating businesses is available on the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce website at www.wehochamber.com/shopsmall. For more information, please visit www.smallbusinesssaturday.com.
West Hollywood will also welcome a number of television personalities to the City in support of Small Business Saturday:
