SARATOGA SPRINGS – The first Spring Shopping Spree will be held on Thursday, April 11 from 4 to 8 pm in downtown Saratoga Springs. This downtown Saratoga event will offer the local community a chance to explore the premier shopping destination of the Capital Region while supporting small businesses and a good cause.
Thirty DBA retail merchants will be participating by offering amazing deals, discounts, and giveaways in their stores throughout the evening. The first 300 shoppers will receive a swag bag filled with additional deals. The event is free to the public. No purchase is necessary to participate.
Attendees can visit each participating store for special in-store offers and enter-to-win raffles, with prizes each worth $50 or more. At 8 pm, the close of the event, shoppers are invited to Wheatfields, 440 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, for the announcement of all in-store raffle winners and a chance to win a fabulous grand prize which includes a parking space downtown for the months of May, June, and July as well as an overnight stay as the historic Adelphi Hotel.
Wheatfields will offer food and drink specials exclusively for this event.
“This new shopping event provides the local community an opportunity to explore DBA retailers and merchants to give them a sneak peek at new spring merchandise, while supporting a wonderful organization! With over 30 member businesses participating, it promises to be a fun evening!” said former Downtown Business Association President, Maddy Zanetti.
The Spring Shopping Spree is a collaborative effort between local businesses and organizations to give back to our community. The DBA has partnered with Wellspring, an organization whose mission is to support survivors and engage the community to end relationship and sexual abuse. Wellspring has been providing services to Saratoga County Residents since the 1970’s and is located in downtown Saratoga Springs. Donations for Wellspring will be accepted throughout the evening at participating stores.
“The DBA and our members are very excited to welcome spring into our stores while bringing awareness to this incredible mission! This partnership is just one more reminder of how when we shop local and we shop small, it’s more than our businesses that benefit! It is our entire community!” said DBA President, Deann Devitt
The event is sponsored by Downtown Business Association member businesses, including the Adirondack Trust Company as a major supporter. Follow the event on Facebook for updates.
