In brief: Shop small in Montclair today
The Montclair Center BID will celebrate Small Business Saturday today Saturday, Nov. 30, with participating businesses offering giveaways, lunch specials at restaurants in the area, as well as maps for a social media scavenger hunt.
Free two-hour parking will be available at all metered spots in Montclair during the holiday season, beginning Nov. 29 and ending Dec. 26.
The BID will host a station on Church Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, providing shoppers with information and a guide to the scavenger hunt.
The BID will be giving away 200 free one-day parking permits to the first 200 shoppers who present same-day downtown shopping receipts at the BID station.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will also visit the area, and Montclair Center mural artist Jhonattan Arango will be welcoming visitors to help paint his mural at 50 Church Street.
On Nov. 30, throughout participating businesses in Montclair Center, shoppers will be able to find large cutouts of our Shop Small Animals. Take a picture or a selfie with them and tag #montclaircenter on Instagram. Eight winners will be randomly chosen from the participants. Santa will also be visiting shops within the district.
