Part of a national effort to support local shopping, Bellefonte's Small Business Saturday include live music, the popular Shop Small Crawl, special activities and discounts at participating downtown businesses, and more.
Small Business Saturday 2021 will be November 27! This year, we're excited to launch a community-wide gift card on Small Business Saturday. Every half hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., we'll announce the winner of a $30 #LoveBFT gift card — all you have to do is stop by our Small Business Saturday Welcome Table at the Centre County Courthouse. At 3 p.m., we'll announce the winner of a grand-prize $500 #LoveBFT gift card. Thanks to our sponsor, Arize Federal Credit Union, all transaction fees are waived on these gift cards.
Purchase your bag for the Shop Small Crawl, then collect pins from businesses to be entered in a second grand prize drawing of $500, sponsored by Universal Settlement Services, by December 19, 2021.
Keep local dollars local this holiday season!
This holiday season, give the gift of shopping local by purchasing a #LoveBFT gift card for friends and family. The digital card works just like a Mastercard, and can be redeemed at participating Bellefonte businesses.
Downtown Bellefonte Inc.'s Shop Small Crawl is a fun way to encourage shoppers to check out some of the unique small businesses in our area and maybe find a new-to-you small business.
Winner will be announced December 20, 2021. (Update! Because of the bags selling out on Small Business Saturday, we’ve extended the entry deadline for the Crawl grand prize until December 31. Winners will be announced January 3, 2023.)
We welcome returning sponsor Arize Federal Credit Union and thank them for their generous support in bringing our community together.
“Serving the region for over 40 years, Arize Federal Credit Union is committed to building positive relationships between our staff, our members and our local community, providing support where needed to help Centre and Huntingdon Counties become thriving communities. We believe in changing the way people think about finances and are committed to extending the credit union advantage to individuals, businesses and organizations in Central Pennsylvania. We are so committed to changing the way people think about finances that in 2018 we eliminated 90% of our service fees. That’s right! Gone! If you’re looking for a better way to bank, you found it.”
