The Town of Davidson Supports “Small Business Saturday”on Saturday, November 26 and
Launches #MyGnomeTown Campaign


The Town of Davidson is pleased to announce its support for “Small Business Saturday” on Saturday, November 26 this year. It’s also the kick-off for the Davidson Gnome Town Tour.

Small Business Saturday
On Saturday, November 26, we encourage Davidson citizens and visitors to kick-off the holiday shopping season by buying locally in all of our retail establishments.
“Supporting local businesses helps our community to remain a sustainable economy,” said Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming. “So many Davidson businesses support the community by hiring local workers, donating to our non-profit organizations, and sponsoring events. Let’s return the favor and support them on Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday shopping season.”


Davidson Gnome Town Tour: Tag a Selfie, Win a Prize
This year, we are pleased to announce the first annual Davidson Gnome Town Tour. The Gnome Town Tour will kick-off on Small Business Saturday (November 26) and run through December 24. Gnomes have a special place here in Davidson, so you will see gnome-shaped cut-outs perfect for posing and photo-taking in our retail establishments and around town. 

Here’s how it works: Customers will visit participating businesses to take a photo or selfie at gnome selfie stations. They can share their photos on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with our hashtag #mygnometown to enter weekly prize giveaways throughout December. There is no limit to how many photos tagged with #mygnometown can be posted – participants can enter as many times as they’d like to increase chances of winning a weekly prize.

Ben and Jerry's

The selfie station is a two-foot cardboard gnome with a cut-out for the customer’s face. Every participating business will have a “Selfie Stop” poster for their door or window. To see a list of participating businesses please visit www.townofdavidson.org/GnomeTownTour.

Our core values state that “Davidson’s economic health is essential to its remaining a sustainable community, so town government will judiciously encourage new business opportunities.” The town’s economic development department focuses on business retention and these events will familiarize participants with our local businesses in time for the holiday shopping season.
