Shop Small Passport Challenge

Discover fantastic local stores while supporting our local economy during the week-long Shop Small Passport Challenge. The event is organized locally by the Spokane County Library District (SCLD) with support from American Express.

American Express launched Small Business Saturday in 2010 to spotlight and support local shops that are the backbone of our communities. For several years, SCLD has worked with American Express to promote small businesses in our area. They continue this year with four SCLD libraries, including the Deer Park location, acting as Neighborhood Champions in the American Express Shop Small program. 

The library has extended the Small Business Saturday program to a weeklong event from Saturday, November 26, to Saturday, December 3.

Shop Small and Passport Challenge

When you shop during the Small Business Saturday event, you can also enter the prize drawing for a chance to win a prize. Eight prize winners will be drawn from the four locations, two for each site, and will be notified by December 10. Each winner can choose the participating small business for their gift certificate.

Entering the prize drawing takes just three steps.

Step 1: Pick up a Shop Small Passport at the Deer Park Library. Passports are available now.
Step 2: Shop at participating businesses to get stickers for your passport during the weeklong event.
Step 3: Turn in your passport with stickers to a participating library by 6pm on December 3 to be entered into a drawing to win a gift card. 

The prizes for the drawing have been generously provided by the Friends of the Argonne, Cheney, Deer Park, and Medical Lake Libraries.

Some businesses are offering specials in celebration of Small Business Saturday. You can view the Google map of participating businesses in Deer Park at:

Shop Small prizes are sponsored by the Libraries Build Business initiative and the Friends of the Argonne, Cheney, Deer Park, and Medical Lake Libraries. 

The Impact

Deer Park and neighboring communities are home to an incomparable group of locally owned businesses. Supporting your local small businesses keeps money local and helps your community by providing jobs and diversity and lowering environmental impact. So, when you make a list of items, please think, can I get this locally? Then, if you think you can or are unsure, save gas and time and stop by one of your neighborhood businesses to find out.
