Staff Report From Augusta CEO

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

During the month of November and culminating on November 24, Small Business Saturday, the Augusta Metro Chamber is encouraging the Augusta region to get up, get out and shop small by participating in a Shop Small Social Media Campaign “Auggie on the Shelf”.  The campaign is in partnership with the Augusta GreenJackets and local small business retailers.

From November 1 through 24, shoppers will stop in participating small business locations to find “Auggie on the Shelf,” post their photo in the store with the mascot doll and tag #AuggieShopsSmall.  Each post equals an entry into the Grand Prize drawing – the more shopping, the more entries!  By shopping on November 24, Small Business Saturday, participant’s entries are doubled.  Two lucky shoppers will receive an Augusta Loves Small Business Prize Package (each valued at over $500).

Participating businesses include: Augusta GreenJackets Hive Pro Shop at SRP Park, Buona Caffe - Artisan Roasted Coffee, Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio, Fireside Kitchens & Grills, Blue Ribbon Awards & Gifts, The Southern Salad, The Swank Company, Posh Tots Children's Boutique, Decorator’s Outlet & Interiors, Mastermind Escape Games, Hildebrandt’s, Greubel's Mixed Martial Arts, Phone Wizz, Peaceful Warrior Apothecary, The Pie Hole, Sweet Moments Café, Davis Appliance & Furniture, Ladybug’s Flowers & Gifts, Poppin’ Stop and Sweet Charlie’s Hand Rolled Ice Cream.
