Shop Locally This Holiday Season!




Get out and #ShopSmall #DowntownDearborn !

Kick off your holiday shopping by supporting small, local businesses in Downtown Dearborn starting on Saturday, November 26, Small Business Saturday, through Wednesday, December 14.

Community partners, including the the East and West Dearborn Downtown Development Authorities, and the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, have assembled a wide selection of retailers and restaurants to offer great in-store deals and a chance to win amazing, local gifts.

Pick up a #ShopSmall #DowntownDearborn Passport that features deals and specials at participating businesses, and every time you make a purchase you will receive a stamp (does not need to be the special or discount item offered). You can also print your passport by downloading it here: Printable Passport. With each stamp you receive, you are entered into a raffle of amazing gifts from local businesses.  You have until December 14 to fill your passport with stamps.

Here’s how the passport campaign works:

  • -On November 26th, come and visit with Santa from 1-4pm (pocket park next to Brome Burgers from 1-2:30pm in the west and Green Brain Comics from 2:30-4pm in the east) for some cheer, photos and selfies. Pick up your passport and get to shopping and dining!
  • -Shop and dine at as many participating businesses as possible throughout the two-week promotion.
  • -Get your passport stamped each time you make a purchase at any of the participating businesses.
  • -For every stamp received, you are then entered into a drawing to win prizes provided by participating businesses.
