This Saturday, Nov. 29, is Small Business Saturday, an alternative approach to the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Created by American Express five years ago, Small Business Saturday promotes shopping at mom-and-pop stores for holiday gifts.
Bank of Books will participate by hosting a Thanksgiving Book Giveaway from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 29-30, while supplies last. There will also be book signings and story times. Check out the Calendar Section on page A2 for times and authors.
D’Amore’s will be giving out free samples of its pizza and Dume Plaza Pharmacy will give a 10% discount on all over-the-counter merchandise. Other businesses participating are Anouk, Cafecito Organico, Lily’s Cafe, Malibu Beach Yoga, Oceanne Salon and Day Spa, Ollie’s Duck & Dive and R Quick Stop.
