Small Business Saturday holds special surprise

Downtown Haddonfield and Republic Bank team up for a surprise.

This Saturday, Nov. 30, Downtown Haddonfield will once again be celebrating Small Business Saturday. With horse-drawn carriage rides, musical performances, free parking and special shopping incentives, Haddonfield is dedicated to supporting its Main Street small businesses on their busiest shopping day of the year.

But did you know that, Republic Bank, a top SBA lender in the tri-state area, is also doing its part in celebrating Small Business Saturday and honoring local small businesses for the sixth year in a row?

Starting at 11:00 a.m., Republic Bank executives, its mascot, R Dog, and a festive street team will surprise two of its valued customers and local mainstays. The street team will parade in front of each store, encouraging passerby to “shop small” by handing out $1,000 in free gift certificates.
