Owensboro’s version of Small Business Saturday kicks off this weekend with a special event. “Shop Owensboro” 2020 features a giveaway of 500 reusable shopping bags this Saturday, November 28 at the Owensboro Convention Center.
The bags will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Masks are required to pick up a free bag. Shopping bags include added bonuses like coupons and hidden gift certificates for random shoppers. The bags will also include a map that shows all of the participating stores plus a Shop Owensboro Bingo card.
The Greater Owensboro Chamber says the Shop Owensboro event was extended to a full week to help businesses maintain social distancing and spread crowds out over several days.
