Small Business Saturday - Passport to Richland Business

The City of Richland is sponsoring a Passport for Small Business Saturday in the Uptown and Parkway Shopping Centers. Participating businesses have donated $2,000.00 worth of gift certificates and merchandise to their stores, which shoppers can enter for a chance to win. To enter, pick up a passport on Small Business Satuday and visit at least ten stores to get your passport stamped.

Once you've visited ten or more stores, you can turn your passport back in where you picked it up to receive an entry for the drawing for one of three gift baskets. Each basket is valued at approximately $650.00 in gift certificates and merchandise from your favorite local stores.

To be entered to win, passports should be returned to pickup/drop-off locations by 5:30 p.m.

Passports may be picked up beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 25th
