Online PR News – 14-November-2013 – Arlington, VA – One More Page Books, an independent, neighborhood-oriented bookstore, announces its participation in Small Business Saturday® and in Arlington Small Business Day on November 30, 2013.
Small Business Saturday® is a day designated by the national Shop Small® movement to support small businesses around the country and encourage holiday shoppers to shop locally during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year, Small Business Saturday® falls on November 30, 2013. On this same day, the store will also be part of the Arlington Small Business Day, a local effort to promote and encourage the public to shop at small businesses in Arlington, VA.

Harrison (“Epic Mom: Failing Every Day A Little Bit More Than You”) who will be at the store at various times throughout November 30th to share their own personal favorite book recommendations with customers.
In addition to these local author visits, One More Page Books will offer special discounts on Small Business Saturday®. All signed books will be discounted 15% and all in-stock children’s board and picture books will be 10% off. A beautiful basket filled with books, wine and chocolate will be raffled off at the end of the day.
