Win a $ 50 Gift Certificate by Shopping Local on National Shop Local Saturday

Columbia, SC – In recognition of National Shop Local Saturday the North Columbia Business Association (NCBA) in partnership with the City of Columbia’s Office of Business Opportunity and other participating business associations are promoting #Selfie Saturday on November 29, 2014.

#SelfieSaturday is a social media campaign which urges residents in the Columbia Metropolitan area to shop in their local communities on the day after Thanksgiving. Shoppers are encouraged to take a picture of themselves in front of their neighborhood merchant’s business and post their selfie on Twitter with the hashtag #SelfieSaturday. Shoppers who post their selfies will be eligible to win a $50 gift certificate which will be awarded to two lucky winners.

Participating NCBA members include:

Vino Garage
2327 Main Street, Columbia, SC 29201

Carolina Kernels
6820 N. Main Street, Suite G, Columbia, SC 29203

Finklin Pharmacy

In 2010 National Small Business Saturday was initiated in the United States by American Express to encourage residents to keep the dollars in their neighborhoods by shopping local the Saturday after Thanksgiving, one of the busiest shopping periods of the year.
