Shopping small in Downtown Pittsburgh

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

It’s Thanksgiving this week – that means Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are right around the corner. Skip the mall madness and instead enjoy a more local, festive shopping experience in Downtown!

Home to over 140 retailers, including many unique, independently owned stores that you won’t find anywhere else, Downtown is the place to put the holidays back in your holiday shopping.

Shop small, shop festive on Black Friday

On Black Friday, November 25, shop from more vendors than ever before at the Peoples Gas Holiday Market. A short walk away, get a photo with Santa at his new house in Heinz Hall Courtyard, where you can also snap some whimsical selfies in the Fred Rogers Selfie Garden. Or simply stroll around and enjoy the festive Downtown neighborhood decked out for the holidays.
