For 10 days, nearly 50 independent retailers in Alexandria will participate in Alexandria Shop Small Week, a new promotion organized by Visit Alexandria.
The week, which runs from Nov. 27 to Dec. 6, will feature special deals, promotions and Instagram giveaways. Specific events that will take place during the week include Plaid Friday, Alexandria’s small business-focused Black Friday event; Small Business Saturday; Museum Store Sunday; Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. Visit Alexandria will also be giving away gift cards on Instagram from Dec. 4 to 6.
Many Alexandria retailers are offering alternative shopping methods in response to the pandemic, so that residents can support small business while staying safe. These include online stores, curbside pickup, private appointments and more.
