SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY — The Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association’s annual Spring Shop & Dine Event is returning for 2022, offering the local community a reason to explore the area’s premier shopping and dining destination, while supporting small businesses and shopping local.
The event is scheduled for 3 to 7 pm on Thursday, April 28 in downtown Saratoga Springs.
Two dozen participating business locations will be offering amazing deals, in-store drawings for valuable prizes, and other promotions throughout the evening.
New this year, DBA tumblers will be available with qualifying purchases, while limited supplies last, at participating businesses. Shoppers are limited to one tumbler per person. Qualifying purchases vary per business.
A DBA information table will be set up in front of Lifestyles of Saratoga at 436 Broadway throughout the event. Shoppers are invited to pick up a “Shopper’s Card” at that location or in any of the participating stores, and visit their choice of at least ten participating retail locations for a stamp on their card, no purchase necessary. As a last stop of the event, shoppers may select one of the participating restaurants to turn in their card and receive either a complimentary drink special, free appetizer or dessert, as a reward, with a minimum of 10 stamps from 10 different shops.
All completed cards redeemed at participating restaurant locations will be entered into a drawing for a $100 DBA gift certificate. Shoppers are limited to one completed card redemption per person. The drawing will take place on Tuesday, May 3.
“After a couple of challenging spring seasons, the DBA and its members are excited to welcome spring back the old fashioned way,” DBA president Deann Devitt said in a press release. “We invite the community to come downtown, check out what our stores have that’s new, and finish up the night relaxing at one of our great downtown restaurants!”
Kirsten Lambert, owner of Tailgate and Party Shop added, “The annual Spring Shopping Event, presented by the Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association, allows our retail stores and restaurants to show our appreciation to our locals. The event will have some great store specials, restaurant promotions, and fun giveaways. We look forward to welcoming Spring and drawing crowds to enjoy our beautiful downtown!”
Jodi Leuchten, owner of 30 Lake Restaurant, agrees. “Spring is in the air; the city is vibrant and ready for a successful season,” she said in the release. “You’ll want to participate in the Saratoga Springs DBA Spring Shop & Dine event! It’s the perfect opportunity to get out and explore all that downtown Saratoga Springs has to offer. Support our local merchants and restaurants, it’s a good opportunity to discover a new favorite.
