Rockport-Fulton will be full of fun during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Residents and visitors are asked to “shop small” on Small Business Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30.
Participating stores and restaurants are encouraging consumers to go around town to collect “Round about Cards” for a chance to win prizes.
The plan for Small Business Saturday
The day kicks off at the “Welcome Station” located at Seaworthy Marine Supply (102 S. Fulton Beach Road, Fulton).
Between 9 a.m. and noon shoppers should stop there first to pick up a map of the participating businesses, as well as other information. Maps will also be available at the Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center until 2 p.m.
Each participating business and Pop up Shop (outdoor vendor) will have “Round About Cards” to give to shoppers. Shoppers will receive one Round About Card just for browsing, and two cards with a purchase.
All Round About Cards should be dropped off at Magnolia’s Two (201 S. Austin St., Rockport) by 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 to be entered into the prize drawings.
This year’s grand prize is a two-night stay at Son Kissed Cottages. Drawings begin at 4:15 p.m. You need not be present to win.
Small Business Saturday® is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year.
