The Mason Area Chamber of Commerce and Mason Area Independent Business Alliance has announced its participation in this year’s Small Business Saturday, taking place on November 25th. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting local small businesses and strengthening and celebrating communities across the country.
To celebrate the day, from 10:00 a.m. until noon, Chamber volunteers will be stationed at the “Big Santa” and his “Letters to Santa Mailbox” on the southwest corner of the Ingham County Courthouse Square. They will be there to take pictures on a family’s phone or camera and encourage local shopping.
“The first 300 people to come to the corner and get their photos taken will get free Santa hats, courtesy of sponsor Ware’s Pharmacy,” said Emily Fenger, MACC program assistant.
Bestsellers Books and Coffee Company is also sponsoring “Cocoa on the Corner” providing hot chocolate to all who come by that morning during the event. The City of Mason and Ingham County are also partners in the event.
