The Marysville Business Alliance (MBA) in conjunctio­n with the Yubasutter Chamber of Commerce is set to hold a Super Saturday Stroll and Shop event this weekend to highlight area small businesses.

This inaugural event, which is part of a continued Small Business Week celebratio­n, will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday in downtown Marysville.

“Businesses in and around Marysville are inviting shoppers to downtown to see all the fine items, food and services they offer, with sidewalk sales, in-store discounts and special giveaways,” Marni Sanders, CEO of Yuba-sutter Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement. “There will also be a vendor fair at 3rd and D streets for home-based businesses or those that do not have a location downtown.”

Sanders said the new event was created with the MBA so that the Yubasutter community can get out and support local small businesses. The event is open to the public and free to attend.

“Local business is built on establishi­ng long-term relationsh­ips,” Sanders said. “That is why it’s important businesses get their products and services in front of the community. By creating these events, the chamber is helping to increase visibility of our small businesses by bringing the community together.”

Sanders said the

Yuba-sutter Chamber of Commerce also is “currently sponsoring the Shop Small, Win

Big Contest, where area residents will be entered to win prizes” from participat­ing businesses. A grand prize of $500 also will be rewarded.

“Participan­ts are entered when they patronize one of the many area businesses that signed up,” Sanders said.
