Small Business Saturday: Shop Local along Maryland’s Main Streets

By Preservation Maryland

When you spend money along Maryland’s Main Streets, you’re supporting local businesses and the historic properties that they steward. If you like window shopping by foot, trying new local restaurants, collecting art and antiques – and need to do some holiday shopping – then Small Business Saturday is for you!


Small Business Saturday is a nationally recognized day to promote, support, and enjoy local businesses across the country. Following, Black Friday, it’s a great way to invest back into your local economy. With 28 Main Street commercial communities in Maryland and Baltimore City, there are is no shortage of stores to support.


The unique shops along Main Street in Ellicott City have long been a destination for Marylanders looking for special gifts and an authentic Main Street experience. As the community grapples with tough decisions about the future of Main Street, the Ellicott City Partnership invites you to Main Street; Old Ellicott City invites you to join our community in celebrating independent businesses this season! Make gift giving and shopping fun again and forget fighting through crowds at the malls.  With over 60 shops and restaurants, there’s something for everyone on your list.  Experience the small business difference in customer service and one-of-a-kind items that you won’t find anywhere else.
