November 24th, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday. If you’re looking to shop local, be sure to head to the towns below for great deals, holiday activities and more!
Downtown Sayville is the perfect place walk around and shop, especially for clothes and accessories. If you’re looking for a gift for the fashionista in your life, be sure to check out Ooh La La, Madison’s Niche, La Sorella Boutique, and the People Outfitter. If you’re looking to show your LI Pride and stay comfortable and warm this holiday season, check out the hoodies and beanies at Long Island Strong.
If you’re looking for sweet treats for stocking stuffers, be sure to stop by Kilwins, an old-fashioned confectionary chain selling decadent chocolates and handmade sweets. Thistle and That is a cute gift shop perfect for finding holiday presents like glass ornaments with a flameless LED candle inside and other accessories for the home. If you get cold while shopping, stop by the Babylon Bean for a coffee, tea or hot chocolate to warm up.
Northport is a great family town with plenty of cute shops. Take advantage of the amazing discounts in East Northport on Small Business Saturday, especially if you’re looking to get a jump start on your fitness focused New Year’s Resolution. Gold’s Gym, Pure Barre, Fit Body Boot Camp and Adam’s Cyclery all have sales.
Port Jefferson’s annual Holiday Shopping Crawl is from 9am to 5pm on Small Business Saturday.
Shop throughout the Village of Port Jefferson and enjoy a free cup of coffee at Starbucks on Main Street. If you’re looking to give experiences rather than gifts, consider a gift certificate for a spa service at Blue Salon or tickets to a show at Theater Three.
The town of Patchogue got a major makeover the past few years, making it a popular go-to for nightlife, dining and shopping. Make Small Business Saturday a fun family outing, enjoy caroling and shopping throughout Patchogue Village and bring kids for free photos with Santa at Patchogue Theatre for Performing Arts (when you bring a toy for the drive.) See “It’s a Wonderful Life” holiday show at Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts and 56th Annual Village of Patchogue Christmas Parade on Main Street. If you’re looking for a gift for the music lover in your life, pick up tickets for an upcoming show at Stereo Garden or vinyl’s from Record Stop.
