Downtown Pittsburgh is an excellent place to show your support for the local economy!
Small Business Saturday is a national initiative that encourages people to come out the day after Black Friday and support their local economy by shopping at their community’s small businesses.
With over 140 retailers, 67% of which are locally owned – Downtown Pittsburgh is an excellent place to show your support for the local economy. Downtown Pittsburgh has small businesses offering men’s and women’s apparel, chocolatiers, shoe stores, jewelry, candy stores, watches, and more to satisfy anyone on your holiday shopping list.
Shop local! This holiday season, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership will promote Downtown’s small businesses through the Downtown Holiday Shopping Passport Program. The passport program will kick off on Small Business Saturday on November 30 and will run through December 23. On Small Business Saturday, stop by our information tent at the Peoples Gas Holiday Market™ in Market Square beginning at 11:00 a.m. to pick up your passport, grab some Small Business free swag, and learn about the program.
