Escondido has come together for Shop Small Saturday to promote the wonderful historic downtown district. MAGEC (Museums & Arts Growing Escondido Culture), the Escondido Downtown Business Association, the City of Escondido, and Visit Escondido are working together to provide a full day of shopping with discounts, special offers and prizes.
This is the second year for the effort to encourage shoppers to visit the city’s small businesses.
According to Katherine Zimmer, Tourism Manager, for the city of Escondido, “This is a great opportunity to support your favorite local spots and find new ones! Small Business Saturday celebrates and helps you discover the unique and surprising small businesses in historic downtown Escondido.”
Start your day by visiting a Welcome Station to enjoy a special treat and pick up our Shop Small Map, shopping bags, flyers and special offers while supplies last.
