Black Friday is the time of year that every person either dreads or becomes unnaturally excited about. Every year people, for those who choose to partake, brave the bitter cold to stand in extremely long lines at Best Buy or Wal-Mart to purchase the beloved flat screen or the new gaming system they have been dreaming of.
Instead of battling the crowds on Black Friday, we encourage you to partake in Martha’s Vineyard’s “Shop Small” Saturday. This is a nation wide campaign developed by American Express to encourage consumers to shop at small local businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Shop Small is beneficial to the Martha’s Vineyard community in that is helps promote and support the great restaurants and shops on the island. The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce has encouraged local restaurants and shops to get involved this year with specials, sales, and promtions. Harbor View Hotel is located just a short walk from all the great shops and restaurants. On Shop Small Saturday, November 28th Harbor View Hotel will be offering a special promotion all day: Buy One Small Plate Receive the Second Small Plate Free (equal or lesser value).
