Saturday, November 25 is Small Business Saturday®, and the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and City of Camden Main Street program want you to celebrate with your favorite small businesses in Kershaw County. But this year, they want you out a day earlier, as well!
Join Amy Kinard, director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Kat Spadacenta, Main Street manager for the City of Camden, for their annual Shop Small tradition on “Plaid Friday” November 24 from 11 am to 1 pm, as they hand out Shop Small bags stuffed with goodies from local businesses to the first 150 people who arrive at Broad Street Park, at the corner of Broad and Rutledge Streets in Downtown Camden. “Plaid Friday” is an alternative to the commonly known “Black Friday” where independent business advocacy groups encourage their communities to bring back the time when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity. It is celebrated throughout the nation as part of the “Shop Indie Local” campaign.
As in years past, Kinard and Spadacenta are pledging to spend a significant amount of their gift giving budgets this holiday season at businesses within Kershaw County, and this year they are challenging the community to do the same.
