Small Business Saturday with Haverhill House Publishing
Annie's Book Stop in Worcester, Massachusetts – This Thanksgiving and holiday season, give a gift to your literary community in Massachusetts and New England by shopping at local businesses on Saturday, November 25—Small Business Saturday. Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester on 65 James Street is going an extra step and featuring Haverhill House Publishing, a local publishing house that features many New England and Massachusetts authors. Stop into ABSW between 12:00 – 6:00 PM for a day of readings, signings, and more. Shoppers can not only find unique gifts they can personalize, but they are also supporting the Worcester business community and local authors and artisans at the same time! Small Business Saturday started as a response to Black Friday, where people would go holiday shopping the day after Thanksgiving, and many large businesses would hold specific sales. Small businesses, our local “mom and pop” stores, were getting pushed out. American Express started a program that gave small, local businesses a hand in catering to the holiday shoppers of their community by offering advertising and special deals for customers using their American Express cards. ABSW officially joined forces with this great movement and has been sharing the store and benefits with other, even smaller “businesses”, local authors and artisans, and giving back to the community. Signed and personalized books make wonderful holiday gifts, and the readings will give you a taste of the author’s flavor to make sure it’s just right for your gift. Not only that, but Small Business Saturday gives people the chance to support their communities—doubly so with ABSW. Not only are shoppers supporting the local bookstore, but they are also supporting local authors and artists. Find a more unique, personalized gift this holiday season—and give back to your local community—at ABSW and other local stores this November 25, Small Business Saturday!
