SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – The town of Sharon recognizes its small businesses on Small Business Saturdays.
Buyers can cross items off their Christmas lists while supporting local businesses during the event, which begins at 10 a.m.
From 10 a.m. to noon, the Christmas elf will visit stores and take photos with shoppers.
The elf will also join Santa Claus for the lighting of the tree at noon. The Sharon High School Chamber Choir will sing songs in a good mood.
The Grinch will be at the Cycle Life Studio on Chestnut Avenue. He will be available for photos from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The studio will have special sales and merchandise available for sale.
The Gifted at Applegate store focuses on offering one-of-a-kind items from local artists and small manufacturers. The store owner said he relies on local shoppers as it can be difficult to compete with big box stores and online retailers.
