ANTWERP – On Nov. 25, Antwerp will be holding its annual Shop Small Saturday event.

Come to the Antwerp Subway, which will be held as the event’s Welcome Center. The Welcome Center will offer hot chocolate, coffee and snacks. The Welcome Center will have 200 free “Shop Small” bags available, each filled with coupons, flyers and items from local businesses. The bags will be handed out from 9 a.m. until noon, so make sure you stop in early.

The Antwerp Chamber of Commerce will also be hosting a Save Your Receipt contest.

To participate, shop at one of the chamber businesses now through Nov. 25 at noon. Then, write your name and phone number on the back of the receipt, and bring it in. You will be entered in a drawing for a $50 chamber gift card. The more you shop, the better your chances of winning are, because you can enter as many receipts as you wish.

This event isn’t just about shopping, though – the chamber will be holding a scavenger hunt starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Participants will be given three hours to find special hidden painted rocks within the chamber businesses. Keep an eye out during your shopping. Bring your completed forms back to the Welcome Center and place it in a box for a drawing to be the grand prize winner.

Many of Antwerp’s local businesses will be participating in this year’s Shop Small Saturday. Some chamber businesses that will be participating are Body Works, Oasis Bar and Grill, Memories by Tawnya and more. There is sure to be a great amount of deals, and a great amount of fun as well. Happy shopping!
