Jonesborough businesses welcome holiday shoppers

Main Street Jonesborough is putting out the “Welcome Mat” for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 29. 
Customers are encouraged to come shop in downtown and enjoy extended shopping hours until 8 p.m. with lots of special incentives and give-a-ways at various businesses.
Many stores will also be offering samples and holiday treats, and don’t forget there will be free gift wrapping at the International Storytelling Center.
Free historic walking tours will also be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Chester Inn Museum provided by the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. 
Lighting of the Tree will kick off the holiday season beginning at 6 p.m. in front of the Courthouse.
In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers.
The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving
This single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
