Shop Independently

Time to put the J-O-Y back in holiday shopping, are we right y’all?! The season is all about giving, and there’s nothing that invokes that warm fuzzy feeling quite like strolling America’s Favorite Main Street and finding a perfect gift for your loved one.

With family in town for Thanksgiving festivities, we encourage y’all to start a new tradition on Small Business Saturday (SBS): it’s the perfect opportunity to #ShopSmall and support indie businesses, all the while creating sweet memories! This year the big event falls on Saturday, November 28.

Below, we’ve put together a quick list of Downtown Franklin Association members (and locally owned businesses) who are offering specials that will make your shopping an even more enchanting experience. Check back, ’cause we’ll keep adding to it!

And what’s better? You can focus on shopping this year instead of where to park! To make it easy, we’ve partnered with The Factory at Franklin and the Franklin Transit Authority to provide FREE round-trip rides from the Factory to Main Street on our “Hop & Shop Trolley.” Plus, Uber is offering new users $20 off their first trip on Small Business Saturday, who use the promo code SMALLBIZNASH. Sign up for the app by clicking this link, and the $20 will automatically be added to your account.

We hope you enjoy #AmericasFavoriteMainStreet while you #ShopSmall in downtown Franklin! See you Saturday. xo
