Historic Park City Merchants Prepare for Small Business Saturday
Park City, Utah (November 10, 2017) – Historic Park City’s boutiques, galleries, and restaurants prepare for the holiday season with Small Business Saturday® events and activities.
Small Business Saturday® was created in 2010 to encourage support of small businesses across the country. Historic Park City boasts more than 200 shops, galleries, and restaurants of which more than 90% are locally owned and operated. The district is Park City’s largest and most concentrated collection of small businesses.
“Small businesses are the bricks of opportunity that help build the Park City community," says Park City Mayor Jack Thomas. “On behalf of City Council, we are honored to officially proclaim November 26, 2016, as Small Business Saturday.”
“Historic Park City’s Small Business Saturday celebrations fortify the district as Park City’s small business headquarters,” says Michael Barille, Executive Director of the Historic Park City Alliance. “There is something for everyone and every budget. From stocking stuffers, books, and crazy T-shirts, to places to get a haircut, take a break for a massage or to watch a game and have lunch, to the most current fashions in apparel and home furnishings. Challenge yourself to get to know Historic Park City all over again. You won’t be disappointed. Small Business Saturday® in Historic Park City is a combination of shopping, great food, entertainment, family togetherness, and unique experiences. Historic Park City merchants look forward to hosting guests as they kick-off the 2017 holiday season.”
In addition to the more than 200 small businesses that make up the historic district, Historic Park City’s Small Business Saturday® celebrations include the lighting of the Town Christmas Tree in Main Street’s Miners Park, the lighting of the Main Street lights, and the annual Electric Parade, a carnival of glittering cars, trucks, trolleys and other creative vehicles.
