Downtown Carlisle will be open and ready for Small Business Saturday, November 24, 2018.

The  Downtown Carlisle Association (DCA), Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce and downtown merchants are gearing up to support shopping and dining in downtown Carlisle this year with a variety of promotions, sales, events and activities all geared to making shopping in downtown Carlisle a great experience.

The DCA has partnered again with the American Express Small Business Saturday campaign to be a neighborhood champion, along with the Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce, to supply specially branded doormats, balloons, pens, notepads, promotional stickers, and canvas shopping bags for customers. Other promotions and sales will be by individual merchants.

Small Business Saturday is a celebration of the Shop Small Movement. Many downtowns across the country have seen a resurgence of interest, investment and revitalization through Main Street Programs, Chambers of Commerce, Arts Organizations, and elected officials. “This is a program dedicated to ‘Keeping It Local’” stated Glenn White, Executive Director of the DCA, “investment an re-investment back into the community, knowing that close to 68% of each dollar spent in a Carlisle small business stays in the community says how important this program to the success of downtown” he continued. Virginia Mauk, Retail Recruiter at the DCA commented, “Downtown Carlisle business owners and employees are our neighbors and our friends and what better way to show our support than to shop downtown not only on Small Business Saturday but throughout the year.”

Your business could be downtown!  Contact Virginia Mauk, Retail Recruiter at 717-245-2648, or email at for more information.
