BLOOMFIELD, NJ- After a tumultuous 2020, many brick and mortar businesses have seen a significant slowdown in foot traffic and sales.
Small Business Saturday is celebrated on the day after Black Friday. Small Business Saturday started as a campaign launched by American Express on Nov. 27, 2010, to help small businesses gain exposure and to inspire consumers to shop within their own communities during the holiday season. Over the years it has grown significantly and has helped draw many costumer away from big box stores and led them shop at locally owned businesses.
The Bloomfield Center Alliance is promoting Small Business Saturday in a fun way with the Bloomfield Center Holiday Hunt, where attendees will find holiday cheer through shopping, music, and ice sculptures.
The Bloomfield Center Holiday Hunt will start at 2PM today at Six Points Plaza (address for GPS: 574 Bloomfield Ave). The day will kick-off with holiday music, hot cocoa and pastries, and a photo-worthy ‘Bloomfield NJ’ ice sculpture which will be on display at the Six Points Plaza (intersection of Bloomfield Avenue and Glenwood Avenue). Upon arrival at the Plaza, attendees will receive a Bloomfield Center Map showing locations of the downtown’s various Holiday Hunt Destinations.
