Where to Shop on Small Business Saturday

24th November 2020

The holiday shopping season is sure to look and feel a bit different this year. But, while it may be tempting to avoid shops altogether and do all of your gift-buying online, there’s more reason than ever this year to get out and about on Small Business Saturday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, small businesses around the area will roll out the sales and the welcome mat for holiday shoppers. With the pandemic hitting independently owned shops especially hard, the holiday rush will be the vital boost that many need. And luckily, there are plenty of small businesses to support right near your The Victor apartment.

One standout is Philly AIDS Thrift, located in South Philadelphia, less than 15 minutes from your The Victor apartment. The shop is a mainstay in the area, with a mission that’s just as valuable as its diverse collection. A portion of proceeds from all sales goes to support HIV/AIDS organizations and causes throughout the region. Throughout its 15 years in business, the shop has donated more than $1 million to fight HIV/AIDS.

No matter what you’re looking to check off your holiday shopping list, you can likely find it at Philly AIDS Thrift. The shop features an expansive selection of gifts: thousands of books, men’s and women’s apparel, housewares, kitchen items, kids’ toys and much more. Items are gently used, giving you deep discounts that can help you save lots of dough this holiday season.

Philly AIDS Thrift was closed for several months during the pandemic, so it’s more important than ever for shoppers to turn out on Small Business Saturday. The holiday is always an important way for shoppers to give back to the local community and, this season more than any other, is a great time to say thanks to the merchants who could use our support.
