As more consumers turn away from traditional shopping malls, Middleburg is well-situated to attract consumers looking for a more authentic shopping experience. “We are here, and we have a unique thing to offer,” said MBPA Vice President Ken Reid at the organization’s monthly Biz Buzz networking event, held June 13 at Middleburg Millwork.
MBPA’s beefed-up Small Business Saturday effort this year is expected to include a social media campaign starting in September, as well as an information booth in a central location downtown on Small Business Saturday designed to assist shoppers with their needs, whether that’s finding a great place to eat or the perfect gift for someone on their list.
The association is currently seeking volunteers who would be willing to assist with the Small Business Saturday efforts. If you would like to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In the meantime, stay tuned for more details, and we hope to see you at the next Biz Buzz, to be held July 11 at Goodstone Inn & Restaurant.
