Small Business Saturday @ Valley Junction
Nov 24 @ 9:00 am

Support local during Small Business Saturday in Historic Valley Junction!

Small Business Saturday was started in 2010 as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday as a way to encourage shoppers to patronize local businesses.  What better way to celebrate this holiday than by shopping in Historic Valley Junction!

During this special shopping day, the first 300 shoppers to stop at Historic City Hall, 137 5th Street, will receive a Small Business Saturday reusable bag filled with goodies!

Home to over 150 specialty shops, restaurants, and services and the single largest collection of independent businesses in Greater Des Moines, there’s a gift for everyone in Historic Valley Junction.  Many stores will have specials and refreshments available.
