Small Business Saturday in Carytown

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Carytown’s mile of style is preparing for Small Business Saturday. Carytown’s merchants are stocking their shelves, posting discounts, and preparing for shoppers looking for a lot less stress while they shop for unique gifts.

As the Carytown Merchants Association says:

“Anyway, as with most everything else, Carytown does holiday shopping differently. Everyone’s heard of “Black Friday”… waking up at 4am to shop with lots of others who haven’t had their coffee yet. It’s quite an experience.  The merchants in Carytown have adopted an new philosophy. “Black Saturday”… Still the same great deals and deeper discounts, just a lot less stress! and no getting up at 4am! Carytown’s “Black Saturday…Because Black Friday was sooooooo yesterday!”

Join in the fun in Carytown on Saturday, you’ll find carriage rides starting at 10 AM!

Carytown is just a mile away from Richmond’s premier bed and breakfast – right in the middle of all Richmond has to offer from sightseeing, shopping, and dining. Richmond is a wonderful place to live and a great place to visit!
