The goal of Small Business Saturday in Leucadia is to encourage residents to shop where they live. One study from Civic Economics found that for every dollar spent in a small business, 48 cents recirculate into the community as compared to only 14 cents spent at a chain retailer. Enticing new customers to visit established and newly opened businesses is central to the campaign’s goals; customers may find they have been traveling long distances only to realize that they could have purchased the same item or service in their own neighborhood.
Participating businesses include: Fish 101, Priority Public House, Vigilucci’s Trattoria Italiana, HapiFish, Pandora’s Pizza, Cafe Ipe, Fully Loaded Micro Juicery, Sugar Coffee and Tea, Seaweed and Gravel, Bamboo 2 U & Tikis Too, Reclaim Humanity, Three Sisters Jewelry Design, Surf Hut Art Gallery, Surfy Surfy, Vixen Boutique, Paddle Planet, Solterra Winery and Kitchen, The Corner Frame Shop and Leucadia Art Gallery, Energy Within Pilates, Noni Salon Boutique Spa, fabrika.monet, Physical Culture 101, Leucadia Plant and Floral, Floral Design by Ari, and The Madd Potter.
In addition to in-store promotions on Nov. 29, customers who choose to participate in the Shop Leucadia Passport Raffle will be entered to win the $1,000 gift package. For full details on participating business offers and how to enter the gift bag drawing, visit leucadia101.com.
