Pelham Chamber of Commerce Announce a Small Business

Saturday Event

Kicking off Small Business Saturday on November 28th, The Pelham Chamber of Commerce announces “Go Green to Spend Your Green” – a safe, fun green screen holiday photo opportunity aimed to drive increased foot traffic to our local businesses on November 28th from 11a-4pm at 200 Fifth Ave.


The Go Green to Spend Your Green initiative is another way the Pelham Chamber is working to spur local business support. Encouraging the community to spend their money in town, the Chamber is offering a free photo opportunity to shoppers who can show proof of a Pelham purchase (receipts). Cristina Chianese, president of The Pelham Chamber of Commerce, shared her goal regarding the Go Green to Spend Your Green initiative, “We want to create a fun, safe holiday event that entices people to come to 5th Ave and support local businesses. No matter how big or small the purchase, every dollar spent in Pelham makes a difference to our businesses. We also want to give back to our community through engaging and celebratory events like this, while always adhering to social distancing guidelines and safety protocols. The last few months have been hard on all of us and doing these types of programs will lift all our spirits, especially around the holidays!”


In addition to the green screen experience, there will be several Pelham Market businesses joining the event including DeCiccos & Son, Tig and Peach, Chestnut Baked Goods, Beau & Co, Flour Power, Shellac, Junior League, and more! In addition, the Chamber is working with Pelham Together to hire a few Pelham students to become the #ShopPelham Meter Squad. They will be walking up and down 5th Ave in their Pelham Strong T-shirts watching for expired meters and offering quarters to any of our shoppers.


To bolster the excitement around town on Small Business Saturday, several of our local businesses are hosting special events and promotions, as well. Vincents Fine Jewelers will be offering 20% off, Frozen’s Anna and Elsa will be making an appearance at Tig & Peach for a very special 45-minute sing along and Storytime, and Thrive Fitness & Barre will be offering $5 off of every $50 merchandise purchase in store. Additionally, Sue’s Corner will be collecting letters for Santa and working directly with the North Pole to make sure all letters receive a response from Santa before Christmas! Speaking of Santa, the Chamber of Commerce has been in touch with the North Pole and it’s very likely Santa will be joining our Small Business Saturday festivities for a drive by to greet all the kids!


It’s the Chamber’s hope that Go Green & Spend Your Green will be great day for our community that helps generate some significant revenue for our merchants. The Pelham Chamber of Commerce has been laser focused on the holidays and kicking off local shopping efforts earlier than last year. On November 1st, they had announced a #Shop Pelham pledge, through which they ask Pelham residents to pledge to #ShopPelham and enter to win $100. The chamber has also been incredibly active on social media, highlighting Pelham businesses each day in an effort to remind the community of the many outstanding local shopping options from retail, personal care, wine, restaurants, fitness and more!
