    Event Description:

    Hello! It's only a few weeks away!  Help our community shine - help your business succeed. Show off your best this holiday season and kick off future sales with return business.  Small Business Saturday gives us the platform to do just that :)

    When we come together as a dozen or more businesses participating in this featured national event - we show the strength of our business community, we demonstrate that we care for our neighboring businesses.  With a minimum participation level of 12 businesses and restaurants, Portland Downtown will throw its resources into promoting you.  If at least 12 businesses have a solid discount offer and/or prizes to distribute - we'll host a check in / information  site with refreshments that day.  We're here to support your efforts!

    But we need to know... Register At the Top By Nov 12 and tell us what your ideas are.  Once you've solidified your offers - email us and we can begin promoting you.  The sooner you let us know, the more we can do with your business and offers! 
    Your Business in the Portland DDA District.
