Mayor Craig A. Moe reminds shoppers that Small Business Saturday is November 24, 2018.

It is a day to celebrate our local businesses and promote shopping local. This year, the Department of Economic and Community Development has a fun way to celebrate it!

Shoppers are asked to come and pick up a FREE Shop Small Passport from the lobby of the Laurel Municipal Center at 8103 Sandy Spring Road. When you shop at a participating small business November 22nd - 30th (visit to see our participating merchants), have them stamp your passport.

Once six stamps are received, turn in your completed passports by December 3rd to the Laurel Municipal Center and a random winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.

The prize is a gift basket filled with goods, coupons and gift cards from local businesses!

If you own a small business, and would like to participate in the Passport Campaign, please call Leigha Steele at 301-725-5300 ext. 2302 or email her at [email protected].

Remember, when small businesses thrive, our communities thrive!
