For the second year, Mr. & Mrs. Santa is helping promote Small Business Saturday this weekend with a toy drive at Brown Bear Design and Gadzooks!
Santa Claus will be handing out candy canes and will be available for photos from 10 a.m. in front of Gadzooks!
Clauses will alternate between locations for pictures and music performed by Ms. Claus throughout the day.
Santa Claus said he would donate the toys to his Salvation Army helpers, where they will be delivered to families in need over the holidays.
Look for him picking up toys or walking along Main Street paying tribute to small business on Saturday participates.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing the kids and hope all is well as the season approaches,” Santa Claus said.
Small Business Saturday is a nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging consumers to support local businesses. In the Carson Valley, the Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Gardnerville are supporting the local store effort.
“Our small businesses are looking forward to a prosperous holiday season after the past two years,” said Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce Director Alicia Main. “Start your holiday shopping by supporting our local small businesses.”
There are 32 businesses in Douglas County on the Trade Route.
To participate, shoppers receive a Chamber of Commerce passport to take with them on their shopping spree.
Businesses will stamp the passport and once completed, buyers will return it to the Chamber of Commerce for a price.
