All Ages

Join the nationwide movement to shop local on Small Business Saturday – November 28. And for Downtown Kalamazoo, Small Business Saturday doesn’t end on November 28 – our team is officially declaring every Saturday in December “Small Business Saturday” and calling the community to join the movement to support small businesses. 

As part of December’s Small Business Saturdays, a Holiday Mall Market featuring local vendors and entrepreneurs will be set up outdoors on the North Kalamazoo Mall. Above and beyond the state health regulations, we ask the community to wear masks, even while shopping outdoors at the market, and continue to maintain appropriate social distance. Support local entrepreneurs at the Holiday Mall Market from 4-8 p.m. on December 5, 12, and 19.

When shopping at a downtown retailer this Small Business Saturday, you will receive an “I Shopped Local – Downtown Kalamazoo” pin. The Kalamazoo Downtown Partnership encourages shoppers to share pictures with their pins and spread the message of shopping locally in downtown throughout the entire holiday season.

Shoppers looking for gift ideas can keep an eye out for Downtown Kalamazoo’s 50 under $50 Holiday Gift Guide, to be released ahead of Small Business Saturday – stay tuned through downtownkalamazoo.org and on social media for products, services, and experiences available in Downtown Kalamazoo.
