Usually, Small Business Saturday is held on the Saturday following Black Friday, but last November the town of Washington – along with East Peoria and other communities around Central Illinois – was still reeling from the devastation of a string of severe tornados. So the Washington Chamber of Commerce decided to postpone the event until summer. Washington is rebuilding and going strong now and we want everyone to see all that this great town has to offer! So THIS SATURDAY, come out to Washington to shop, eat and visit some terrific locally owned businesses! There is a coupon flyer compiled by the Chamber of Commerce with special offers on everything from coffee to eye care, from collectibles to dining (and of course, scrapbook supplies)! We will have special reusable tote bags to carry home your new purchases, copies of the coupon booklet and more. The Paper Forest is proud to be a part of this community and we are very grateful to all our loyal friends & customers for the support and caring that kept us going as the town struggled in the wake of the November storms. Having been open barely one year when the storms brought such an impact, it was the support of the community that helped us to stay strong. We love serving each and every one of you and hope you will show the same kind of support to other local businesses so we can all grow and build together! Let this Saturday be a chance to discover something new right here in your own backyard – a new favorite shop, a new hair stylist, a new favorite restaurant or just rediscover one you’ve missed for a while. Download the complete list of Washington Summer SBS Coupons or just come by and pick up a copy in the store! Hope to see you Saturday!
