Shop Small in Cambridge

Cambridge feels downright jolly over participating in Small Business Saturday efforts. Shopping small is an easy way to get yourself on the nice list! 

Small Business Saturday is November 30. Save the date and start exploring a directory including local holiday specials. With these specials and more, you'll find unique, personal gifts. Be warned: you will want to treat yourself too!

In addition to enjoying specials from local businesses, you can also join City staff at Pop Up Events in our Squares. Receive Bluebikes passes, commercial district maps and "Shop Cambridge" tote bags. Warm drinks and snacks will be up for grabs as well. You can learn more and RSVP via the Small Business Saturday Facebook event.

Speaking of social media, we know another way to show some love for small businesses. That's by using the hashtag, #ShopCambMA. Feel free to use it when you post about killer window displays, purchases, or dining and other experiences you enjoyed in our Squares. The goal of the #ShopCambMA campaign is to share all the special things our small business community offers.

If you #ShopCambMA, you'll promote community development and support our local economy. By shopping small, you make a big difference.

When you shop small, did you know more than half of your dollar stays in the community? This is extra relevant when it comes to holiday shopping. Small businesses rely on sales from the holiday season during the whole year.

We hope to see you in our Squares on Small Business Saturday and throughout the holidays!
