Tis the season to Shop Small! It’s the biggest shopping promotion of the year! Support local businesses the week of November 20-29 during Shop Small in Mankato and North Mankato presented by Community Bank. You’re sure to find something for everyone on your list – plus chances to fuel up and enjoy some downtime!
Greater Mankato serves as a retail center, with hundreds of stores including many locally owned businesses. Clothing, home goods, jewelry, craft supplies, gourmet foods, games and treats are all available in our specialty establishments. Our friendly, knowledgeable business owners are able to help you find exactly what you are looking for- or what you didn’t know you wanted!
Plan a day trip to Greater Mankato for your holiday shopping. Start with coffee at a local shop, enjoy some retail therapy at the many unique boutiques in the morning, stop for lunch at one of our charming cafes, continue your afternoon shopping experience, and end the day with dinner and drinks at a local pub.
We have eight Shop Small zones with participating businesses providing special offers to shoppers. Be sure to use the Shop Small Passport, which can be found at participating businesses and Community Bank (the proud sponsor of Shop Small in Mankato & North Mankato), to see which businesses are participating and earn entries at each stop for great prizes valued at $100.
No worries on navigating between the shopping zones. It’s all so close! Although robust with offerings of a big city, the community time from one to the other is short and parking is easy. You can get from one end of town to the other in 15 minutes or less.
