    GREATER BRIGHTON CHAMBER CHOSEN AS A SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY NEIGHBORHOOD CHAMPION BY AMERICAN EXPRESS
     
    Brighton, CO - The Greater Brighton Chamber of Commerce has been chosen as a Small Business Saturday Neighborhood Champion through the American Express Shop Small campaign.  This is an exciting opportunity for the Chamber as it gives us additional resources to share with our community to encourage local shopping and dining this holiday season.
     
    Small Business Saturday is about more than just shopping at small businesses. It's a cause that helps support our local economy and promote a unique, vibrant, and diverse community. Small Business Saturday is a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together and celebrate the community because they know it matters. Small businesses play a key role in helping Brighton thrive. By shopping or dining at your favorite local places throughout the year, you're showing your support for small businesses and making a positive impact in your community.
     
    To launch Small Business Saturday please join us at our Small Business Saturday Kickoff Party on Saturday, November 24th at Main Street Café (161 N Main St, Brighton, CO 80601) from 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. The Mayor of Brighton will be present to read his official proclamation of Small Business Saturday and our President/CEO, Naomi Colwell will discuss the impact Small Business Saturday has on our community. We will provide breakfast snacks, giveaways, music, face painting for the kids. Pick up a passport and shop or dine at over 20+ Brighton participating businesses. Collect stamps and be entered to win great prizes. 

    We will host a Small Business Saturday block party featuring your favorite retailers, restaurants, and bars in Downtown Brighton on Main Street. We will be featuring three Welcome Stations around Brighton; Main Street Café (Downtown Brighton), SOFX: Soul on Fire Xercise (Prairie Center), and South Philly Cheese Steaks (Brighton Pavilions). Bring your family along for a fun day of shopping, dining, and fun!
