Chincoteague to participate in Small Business Saturday

November 19, 2019

Chincoteague, VA- During this time of holiday gift giving, the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce reminds us to “Shop Local”. Explore the fabulous art galleries, specialty shops, bookstores, and unique businesses on Chincoteague Island and surrounding area. Saturday, November 30 is observed nationally as Small Business Saturday to celebrate the diversity and heritage of small businesses and to encourage us all to shop in our hometown, keeping tax dollars in the community to further stimulate the local economy. After Black Friday and before Cyber Monday, we promote Small Business Saturday to boost awareness and support for businesses both local and small.
