Shop Small

Kick off your holiday shopping by supporting small, local businesses in Downtown Dearborn starting on Small Business Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving). Each year, community partners assemble a wide selection of retailers and restaurants to offer great in-store deals. Shoppers can pick up a passport to savings at more than 40 participating businesses and get stamps for each purchase, having a chance to win amazing local gifts.

Shoppers near and far can kick off their holiday shopping with special perks at Downtown Dearborn’s unique businesses starting on Small Business Saturday, November 28, through Sunday, December 6.

Before hitting the shops, patrons are invited to download and print the Passport to Savings, a pamphlet outlining more than 30 businesses’ in-store deals, to get stamped and returned for a chance to win prizes provided by local retailers. The Shop Small Downtown Dearborn Passport is also available in participating stores and restaurants.


The more you shop and dine, the better your chances are at winning. For every Passport stamp received when you patron any one of the participating businesses listed below during Shop Small Downtown Dearborn, you’ll be entered to win local prizes!
