Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is an annual holiday celebrating small businesses and encouraging consumers to shop locally at the start of the holiday shopping season. This year, Small Business Saturday is November 25th. Small businesses are the heartbeat of our community, and the City of Early would like to thank you for supporting us by helping you advertise your business. This year the Early Municipal Development District is launching Shop Small, Shop Early, Win Big campaign. Each shopper who shops at the Early participating business on Small Business Saturday will get a ticket for each $25 they spend for a chance to get in the cash cube on Tuesday, November 28th, at the Lighting of the Christmas Tree.


For every $25 spent on Small Business Saturday, November 25, 2023, at a participating business (Humphrey Pete's Restaurant, K Leshae's Florist & Gift Boutique, Legacy I. T., Los Trece, TX Skies Over Texas Winery, The UPS Store) your name will go into the drawing for a chance to participate in the "Cash Cube".  



Up to ten (10) winners have the chance to participate. Winners may only participate once, even if their name is drawn more than once. The Prize consists of the opportunity to grab up to $800 in Early Bucks'. Early Bucks may be redeemed at 111 Creative Nutrition, Double H Mercantile, Humphrey Pete's Restaurant, Jerry's Burger & Shakes, K Leshae's Florist & Gift Boutique, Legacy I. T., Los Trece, TX Skies Over Texas Winery, and The UPS Store. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Small Business Saturday Shopping Event.



A City of Early representative will select potential winners in random drawings from all eligible entries on Monday, November 27, 2023. Winners must be able to be present on November 28 @ 6:30pm to be eligible. Winners will be contacted via phone on Monday, November 27, 2023. Winners must attend the City of Early's Lighting of Christmas Tree event to participate in the Cash Cube. Each winner must bring someone to catch their money from the cash slot. The City of Early will make its best reasonable effort to contact all winners. Any potential prize winner who does not respond to prize notification attempts will be found to be ineligible or cannot attend on November 28, 2023; such potential prize winner will be disqualified, and an alternate winner may be selected.
