Small Business Saturday goes virtual

Small Business Saturday goes virtual

Small Business Saturday ShopRI will be held virtually this year on Saturday, Nov. 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at SbsShopRI.com .

The event will feature games, giveaways and vendor interviews. For the safety and convenience of holiday shoppers and vendors alike, the website will serve as 2020’s all-under-one-roof, pop-up mall.

The 100 vendors range from artists, Social Venture Enterprises, Farm Fresh RI, veterans, and minority-owned businesses and represent a diverse population as well as a wide range of unique gift ideas. A special event-day page will categorize the vendors for fast, easy shopping, in addition to the separate vendor page listing, which will remain in effect until the end of the year, to help support small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
