Discover Burien is participating again this year as a neighborhood champion for ‘Small Business SaturdayÂ®,’ which is set for Saturday, Nov. 28. This is a day to celebrate and support our small, local businesses in Burien and all they do for our community. When we shop local we support the businesses owned by our friends and neighbors. We contribute to the investment in our community. An article published by the American Independent Business Alliance indicates that â€œfor every dollar we spend locally, three dollars comes back to our communityâ€. Small Businesses are also more likely to donate to local charities, sports teams and non-profits. They, like you, are invested in our community. Small Business Saturday is our chance to thank our small businesses for all that they do for us through out each year. Please join us this Shop Small Saturday from 10am-11am at the Discover Burien Office and Visitor Center for our first ever Shop Small Saturday kick-off breakfast, sponsored by Maven Mercantile and Burien Press. Donâ€™t forget to pick up your Shop Burien punch cards while you are enjoying your FREE coffee and pastry at the kick-off event. When you make a purchase in Burien have the merchant punch or sign the card and then return the completed card to Discover Burien by 5pm for your chance to win a $250 shopping spree in Burien, generously donated by our members. If you want an early start, the Shop Burien cards are available now at the Discover Burien office or with many of our member businesses. Enjoy visiting your favorite local Burien businesses and start your Holiday shopping off right this season by giving back to our community. Donâ€™t forget to take a lunch or dinner break from all that shopping as well and enjoy a meal at one of our great Burien restaurants. Never has giving back to the community been more fun! We hope to see everyone out this Holiday season shopping small, and shopping in Burien. Discover Burien is a non-profit service organization dedicated to economic development and community engagement in Burien.
