National Small Business Week,

May 5-11, 2019

Celebrate the small businesses that make cities unique by shopping Main Street communities during National Small Business Week. Main Street Vermilion has partnered with local Main Street organizations* to bring you a week of shopping filled with savings, sales, new discoveries and a chance to win one of five $100 prizes!

Here’s how it works:

  1. START by picking up your SHOPPING PASSPORT at Main Street Vermilion now through Small Business Week. It features participating communities and businesses ready to welcome you. You can also download the passport here and print at home.

  2. SHOP in two or more participating communities during National Small Business Week, Sunday, May 5th through Saturday, May 11. (Don’t forget that this is the week leading up to Mother’s Day. Just saying.)

  3. SPEND at least $10 with a participating business and they’ll stamp your passport. At the end of the week, all you need is three stamps to show you shopped in at least two communities. Now you’re eligible to win one of five $100 prizes.

  4. ENTER the drawing by turning in your stamped passport to Main Street Vermilion by Monday, May 13th by 4PM. The drawing will be held and winner announced on Friday, May 17th during a Facebook Live video from the Small Business Development Center at LCCC.

It’s that easy and a great way to discover small businesses in your town and surrounding communities and support small businesses.

Stop in at Main Street Vermilion to pick up your passport any day of the week from Noon to 4PM (or download here). Then get out there and shop during National Small Business Week. Need more information? Call 440.963.0772
