Small Business Saturday Tips & Tricks

Of course, even the best-laid plans can go awry. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help you make the most of your Small Business Saturday shopping trip. Check them out below!

  1. Bring cash or use a credit card with low fees: Many small businesses either don’t accept cards or are charged higher fees for card transactions, so it’s always best to bring cash if possible. But if you do use a card, make sure it’s one with low fees so the business doesn’t get hit with hidden charges.
  2. Leave yourself extra time: Small businesses tend to be busiest at the start of the day and right before closing time, so try to avoid shopping during those times if possible. Instead, aim for mid-morning or mid-afternoon when things tend to be a bit more relaxed.
  3. Know what you want: When you walk into a small business, chances are the staff won’t be able to help you as much as they could in a bigger store. So before heading out, take some time to think about what you’re looking for and write down any specific details or questions that you might have. That way you can get in and out quickly without holding up other shoppers.

This Small Business Saturday, head out and explore all that Chester County has to offer! With great deals, promotions, and more waiting around every corner, you’re sure to find everything you need (and more!) while supporting your community at the same time. Happy shopping!
