Saturday, November 26 is Small Business Saturday across the country and Adams Morgan Main Street is taking “Think Local” to a higher level in promoting independent businesses.
So while you are out shopping in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area, head north across the border to Adams Morgan for more specials. (See Think Outside the (Big) Box: Shop Local on Small Business Saturday.)
With 32 businesses on its local tour of Specials for the Day, Adams Morgan is saying its open for business in spite of the streetscape construction.
In addition to the special offers from 32 participating businesses, Adams Morgan has a full program planned for the Suntrust Plaza at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW:
- President Obama is sending the Deputy Administrator of the SBA to highlight the importance of small business to the economy, and several City Council members will speak.
- Drawings for 15 winners of $25 cash shopping certificates (drawings begin at 11:30 am). Check in at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW and anyone can enter.
It’s also the 40th Anniversary of the Adams Morgan Farmer’s Market (8:30 am to 1 pm) and Tryst is offering free coffee and cider.
