Local stores will be in the spotlight for Small Business Saturday.
Almost 100 retailers in the Appleton area are holding a “Shop Appleton First” passport program again this year.
Dawn Ebert of Simple Simon Bakery is on the board of the Appleton Northside Business Association. She says people can win prizes, if they get their passport stamped at five participating businesses.
Ebert says each business donated a gift certificate, and they’ll be given away. The grand prize is two round-trip plane tickets to Fort Myers, Fla.
She says businesses will have special items on sale, free samples, and coffee and tea for shoppers.
