Developed by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is a great way to get involved in your local community while getting a head start on your holiday shopping. After an enjoyable and delicious Thanksgiving Day with your relatives, the next thing on your mind is probably the holiday season ahead and the long list of treats and gifts you have to purchase. This year, Hilliards Chocolates encourages you to take some time out of your busy shopping schedule for the small, local businesses in your area. Small Business Saturday offers shoppers a great opportunity to find unique and one-of-a-kind holiday items while supporting their local economy.
Here at Hilliards, our shops will be filled with all of our most delicious seasonal offerings, making it one of the best times of the year to stop in and see us. With holiday favorites like homemade ribbon candy, candy canes, peppermint bark and more, there are options that will make every member of your family smile. Whether you plan to use your treats as hostess gifts or will be placing them in your stockings, now is the perfect time to pick them out. These gourmet confections are only around once a year!
Looking for a way to make all of December exciting for your children? Purchase one of our unique chocolate advent calendars for a daily treat your kids will love. A Christmas themed rendering of our Easton shop, there are 24 pieces of milk chocolate wrapped up like presents inside! Paired with elves and a sweet saying, these gourmet candies will make every day a celebration.
Small Business Saturday takes place on November 28 this year, and we at Hilliards hope to spend the day with you at one of our three Massachusetts locations! Visit us online to see an array of our favorite holiday sweets and search the American Express website to find other participating area shops. Happy Holidays!
