It's so easy to make an online purchase these days. Just whip out the cell phone, give it a couple taps, and before you know it a package is showing up at the door. Amazon Prime Day was just last week - and they extended the one day of online deals to two this year. And now there's multiple days of online savings that will go along with the three days of in-store deals with Walmart's Black Friday plans. When you get right down to it - the convenience of it all is just so tempting when making purchases.

We're all being invited to take a moment to think about the craziness of 2020 and how the pandemic has affected local businesses. The claim can be made that small businesses could use the support this year more than any other. In an effort to help, the Downtown Missoula Partnership is presenting Fall Shop Small Days - and it's underway right now! More than twenty downtown shops are offering deals, extended hours and more. It's spread over three days and you can shop in person or online. So think about those online purchases you plan to make with the big stores - check out the local deals you can get online - and shop small if you can.

Put your money where your heart is – Downtown Fall Shop Small Days are here! Whether you’re shopping online or shopping in-person, now’s the perfect time to get a jump on holiday shopping or treating yourself to something new. Sales, giveaways, and special promotions from all of your favorite shops – you can’t go wrong supporting locally owned businesses. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to dine small!

Make it a date night. Make it a gal pal’s night out. Make it a memorable evening in Downtown Missoula and shop small!
