Leucadia Main Street to Host San Diego’s Largest Small Business Saturday Event

Encinitas, CA—November 13, 2016— The Leucadia 101 Main Street and over thirty-five locally owned businesses along Leucadia’s N. Coast Hwy 101 corridor will be hosting Small Business Saturday November 26th all day.  “These business owners are your neighbors, friends and they are definitely some of the hardest working people you can find” said Nick Winfrey President of the Leucadia 101 Main Street Association. “Take some time to get to know your local business owners and you are sure to uncover a unique story about your community and learn a little about local history.”

The Leucadia 101 Main Street will be kicking off this day of events with a morning Highway 101 Cleanup meeting at  9 am at Leucadia Floral & Plant (1114 N. Coast Hwy 101). This cleanup effort has removed over 5,000 cigarette butts from Hwy 101 that would eventually end up in the ocean.

Throughout the day on November 26th shoppers can expect a festive atmosphere with special live music, Instagram scavenger hunts, major in store promotions and gifts in exchange for purchases. The first 150 customers to make a $50 purchase at a participating business will receive a free limited edition ‘Leucadia’ print by artist Daniella Manini. Make sure to shop early because these much-coveted prints will run out quickly.  

Throughout the day, The Leucadia Main Street (along with their scavenger hunt sponsors) will also be hosting thirteen mini scavenger hunts for $100 gift cards totalling over $1300 in prizes hidden throughout Leucadia on November 26th. We might start the scavenger hunt early to get everyone warmed up so make sure to follow us on Instagram @leucadia101mainstreet. All clues will be given through our Instagram feed.

The goal of Small Business Saturday in Leucadia is to encourage residents to shop where they live. One study from Civic Economics found that for every dollar spent in a small business, 48 cents recirculate into the community as compared to only 14 cents spent at a chain retailer. Enticing new customers to visit established and newly opened businesses is central to the campaign’s goals; customers may find they have been traveling long distances only to realize that they could have purchased the same item or service in their own neighborhood.

Participating businesses include: Pandora’s Pizza, fabrika.monet, VIXEN Boutique, Leucadia Plant and Floral, FERN, Solterra Winery and Kitchen, Paddle Planet, Royal Liquor, Cielo Boutique, Cielo Hair and Skin Salon, 454 Tattoo & Body Piercing, Surfy Surfy, Energy Within Pilates, Shatto & Sons, Corner Frame Shop and Leucadia Art Gallery, The Lanai Island Grinds, Fully Loaded Micro Juicery, HapiFish, Fish 101, Royal Liquor, Coffee Coffee, Seaweed and Gravel, Surf Hut Art Gallery, Regal Seagull, FERN, The Hatch Bicycle & Adventure Workshop, Yocadia, Moonshadow Boutique, Vigilucci’s Trattoria Italiana, Birdseye Kitchen, Random’s Boutique and Priority Public House.
