    Small Business Saturday

    November 26th marks the seventh annual Small Business Saturday, a national event that promotes shopping with local small businesses. The Chamber is excited to be participating in Small Business Saturday by holding a Scavenger Hunt starting on November 26th and going through December 17th that the general public is welcome to participate in. Hunt for the posters hung up inside a variety of businesses. Each poster has a different word on it and it is your job to sort out the words and make out the sentence. Each store has a different sentence. Have fun with the scavenger hunt all while shopping small and supporting your local businesses. There will be a press conference on Monday, November 21 at 11:00 am located at Bremer Jewelry, 4707 N. University Street in Peoria, to kick off this year’s festivities. Please view the attached PDF for further scavenger hunt details.
