Alexandria Shop Small Week

November 27 – December 6, 2020

Experience Alexandria, Virginia’s biggest shopping week of the year, the first-ever Alexandria Shop Small Week, November 27 to December 6, 2020. Kicking off with Plaid Friday: Alexandria’s Small Business Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, Alexandria Shop Small Week is an opportunity to show your support for the D.C. region’s largest destination for independent boutiques with 10 days and two weekends of deals, promotions and Instagram giveaways at @VisitAlexVA.

This year, it’s more important than ever to show your love for small businesses. Check out Visit Alexandria’s new digital Guide to Alexandria Holiday Shopping for ideas on where to shop online, get curbside pick-up and more.
