Downtown's Shop & Savor smAlbany

November 20 - December 4, 2021

B. Lodge & Co. presents Shop & Savor smAlbany, two weeks of promotions celebrating and showcasing downtown Albany's independent businesses this holiday season.

As an extension of the annual Small Business Saturday event, Downtown’s Shop & Savor smAlbany will run for two consecutive weeks, from Saturday, November 20 through Saturday, December 4.

To encourage the community to support Downtown’s locally owned and operated businesses during the holiday season, receipts from any purchase made at a Downtown business during these two weeks can be submitted for a chance to win a Shop Small tote bag filled with $600 in merchandise and gift cards from Downtown businesses.

Customers who submit information on purchases – which includes dining in or ordering out from Downtown restaurants, buying items from Downtown retailers online or in-store, personal care appointments including haircuts, and gift card purchases including the Downtown Albany Gift Card – will also be entered to win one $50 Downtown Albany Gift Card, valid at more than 40 Downtown locations, and one $20 B. Lodge & Co. gift certificate. Participants can receive a bonus entry by making purchases on Small Business Saturday (Saturday, November 27).

Purchases must be made between 12:01 AM on November 20 and 11:59 PM on December 4; proof of purchase must be submitted to by 8:30 AM on Monday, December 6, 2021 to be eligible. Receipts must clearly show the date and location of purchase and dollar amount to be included in the contest. Each receipt will count toward one entry in the contest; there is no limit to the number of entries a participant can make. Winners will be chosen at random from all valid entries and contacted the week of December 6. No purchase necessary; click here to enter without submitting receipts. Purchases must be made at businesses or organizations located within the Downtown Albany BID's geographic boundaries to be eligible.
