Shop the Dale for Great Deals on Saturday November 29

SmallBusinessSaturdayLogoOn Saturday Scarsdale merchants will host their first "Small Business Saturday" and offer great deals and discounts to local shoppers. 35 local businesses in downtown Scarsdale, the Golden Horseshoe and at the Heathcote Five Corners will offer substantial discounts, free food and gifts plus raffles to give shoppers an economical way to begin their holiday shopping.

The event came about through a partnership between The Acceleration Project (TAP) and the Chamber of Commerce in response to local consumers' desire for improved pricing and value. Results from TAP's Buy Local study, including quantitative survey feedback from local customers, demonstrated a real need for meaningful promotions. "Consumers truly want to support local businesses, but they also want good value. Scarsdale's Small Business Saturday is the perfect answer," said Jane Veron, TAP Co-Founder and Co-CEO.

Small Business Saturday has been gaining momentum nationwide as a recognized day for consumers to support their local businesses when beginning their holiday shopping. "On November 29, it is our hope that local residents patronize local merchants for their holiday gift giving and festivities. Our merchants depend on holiday shopping and orders for their long term business health, "said Lisa Tretler, TAP Co-Founder and CEO. For every $100 spent in local independent businesses, $45 on average goes back into our local economy versus $0 when spending online," Tretler said.

I love the idea and try my best to shop in the village. I wish the village had more useful shops!

Last comment! Bronxville as well as other surrounding towns offer free parking at meters for small business Saturday in order to help local businesses achieve what they are hoping to achieve which is to get people to shop local. What a great way for the village to support small business.

It seems to me that the point of Small Business Saturday is to get out and do our part to support the merchants that keep our town vibrant and storefronts filled. I will definitely keep an extra few purchases local this year!

Larchmont and many other villages do not let people park for the day and head into the city to shop. There are no meters and parking is limited to 2 hours. So people can come and shop locally for a solid two hours and not have to worry about expiring meters. In my opinion, it's a much better system than Scarsdale's antiquated meters. In an area where taxes are rather ghastly, it seems like metered parking and ticketing for mere minutes over a meter are not conducive to a positive community vibe. Meters are NOT necessary; signs (as are already posted) limiting parking to 2 or 4 hours ARE probably necessary in a place like Scarsdale that has easy access to the city.

I hate meters, too (in fact, I got a ticket just last week), but I understand why they are necessary. In fact, the answer is so obvious I'm surprised you didn't think of it. If there were no meters then a bunch of folks who wanted to go into the city would park in the village in the morning, hop on the train, and then you would complain about how there is never any parking in the village and that's why you go to the chain stores on Central Avenue. Metered parking gives everyone a turn and ensures that the vast majority of the people who park in the village are "Shopping the 'Dale," and not Fifth Avenue.

Shopping online is easy and I can often find better deals, but empty store fronts in our community do more harm to all of us than the few dollars or minutes we can save.

I love the idea of our community helping each other. I will do some of my holiday shopping this Saturday!

Thanks for the reminder.

Great to see that our community is working together to help small businesses and serve consumers' needs for value and convenience at the same time. I will be shopping the 'Dale on Saturday!

How about coordinating with the village to offer free metered parking so we're not tempted to go to Larchmont instead? Still baffled that a place like Scarsdale needs to charge people to park. It's not very conducive to building a community spirit and supporting businesses. Seeing someone you know at Starbucks and feeling stressed out that you can't talk because you're 2 minutes over on your meter really sucks. So I get why people would rather grab a coffee on Post Road or Central Ave and patronize the chain stores that offer parking.
