It's time to get gifty! - Shop in Decatur on Thursdays in November and December. Terrific Thursdays are back with special in-store events, discounts, and treats at more than 20 shops, restaurants, and services. Park once and walk around town. Participating businesses will stay open late, offering beverages, snacks and special offers. In December Santa joins the fun visiting shops and restaurants within the city limits.
New This Year: 30 Days of Shopping
Jump-start your holiday spirit – and your holiday shopping – with local daily tips all through November on the city blog, The Decatur Minute. Our blogger knows the inside scoop for the best gifts in unexpected places. Check in to see what she's found, then come and explore for yourself!
Back by Popular Demand This Year!
Spend $200 at any Decatur shop during the month of November, bring your receipts to the Decatur Visitors Center and receive a $20 gift card from a local restaurant. You don't have to spend $200 all in one place, just make sure you keep all of your receipts from any store located in City of Decatur any day of the week (not just Thursdays!). Bring your receipts to the Visitor's Center at 113 Clairemont Ave. and you'll have your choice of gift cards from one of Decatur's restaurants. Limited to 3 cards per person while supplies last. $200 can only be spent on items, not meals or spa services.
Small Business Saturday and Sunday!
Saturday, Nov. 28 • 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 29 • noon-5 p.m.
Bring your list and check it twice! Shop locally for gifts and treat yourself to festivities on the square - holiday music, giveaways, free gift wrapping for city of Decatur shop purchases, and a special Saturday Santa appearance, 1-5 p.m.
