Local Business Owners and the Darien Chamber of Commerce are participating in Shop Small Saturday in Darien on Nov. 25.

Ninety-eight percent of Darien shops and restaurants are owned locally!

Shopping locally is social. And Darien businesses donate goods and services to local nonprofits and schools year after year.

Many locally owned businesses will have specials for shoppers on Saturday, Nov. 25 — a great reason to visit a favorite store or discover something new in town! Go to www.darienctchamber.com for a list of participating retailers.

American Express sponsors Shop Small Saturday and will be rewarding purchases made with a AE Card at participating merchants by delivering 2x rewards during the promotion.

Shop owners and managers recently came together to promote “Shop Small Saturday” throughout Darien’s shopping including Downtown, Noroton Heights and Goodwives Shopping Center. These included Helen Ainson, Spree, Kirby and Company, Barrett Bookstore, The Dock Shop, Darien Toy Box, Williams & Company, At Home in the Heights, Everything is Rosey, Grieb’s Pharmacy, Chocolate Works, and Town House Finds + Designs.
