Win big by shopping small in Downtown Macon! Join us the Saturday after Thanksgiving as we celebrate Small Business Saturday and host a sticker scavenger hunt for the chance to win a $500 shopping spree!
To win, find one of our “Shop Small” stickers in participating downtown Macon retail shops or boutiques. Then, show a staff member from that store, and they will enter you into a contest for a chance to win.
Make sure you take home your exclusive sticker as well! The only way to get one of these stickers is to find it during the scavenger hunt.

About Shop Small Saturday
Downtown Macon boasts 32 retailers, 52 restaurants, 6 art galleries, 33 bars and entertainment venues, and 5 historic theaters. All are locally owned and operated.
When you shop local, you're supporting your fellow community members. For every $100 spent with a locally owned business, $68 stays in the community. Purchasing a record at your local vinyl shop, a pair of shoes at your neighborhood boutique, or a burger at or your favorite dive is tiny investment in your community and offers a completely unique experience.
