Black Friday & Shop Small Business Saturday

Black Friday or Shop Small Saturday? What’s your preference?
Stillwater is the Ultimate Shop Small Destination in Minnesota and one of America’s Most Picturesque Towns. Choose a charming scene for shopping! Our month-long Hometown for the Holidays celebration of the season starts with Black Friday and continues until New Year’s Eve!
Black Friday – November 29th 

The civilized and sane way to kick-off your holiday shopping at Independently owned businesses not Big Box stores full of plastic junk! No 6am wake up calls – The Historic Downtown Shopping District opens early at 9am with holiday shopping specials, deals and refreshments. Unique shopping and dining – you just won’t find in a small, big box mecca, or online. And… we have strolling carolers and Santa!
