"Shopping small and supporting local businesses has never been more important than it is in 2020," remarked Homespun owner Ben Cooney. "Dozens of small businesses are closing each week due to the financial strain COVID-19 has caused. Shoppers now have a chance to support multiple small businesses in South Minneapolis during the Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday weekend."
A group of 10 small businesses in South Minneapolis are joining together to offer a special deal to customers: Buy four $25 gift certificates, get one free. Customers can choose which five businesses they would like to support through their gift certificate purchase.
The participating businesses are: Homespun Gifts and Decor, Mother Earth Gardens, Sift Gluten Free, Moon Palace Books, Harriet and Alice, Tangletown Bikes, Tare Market, Wild Rumpus, Rue48 Salon, and Blooma.
Purchases can be made on Homespun’s website ( www.homespunmn.com) beginning Black Friday at 12:01a.m. until 11:5 p.m. on Cyber Monday. Customers will have the choice to have their chosen gift certificates mailed to them for a small shipping fee (~$4) or they can pick up their gift certificates at Homespun at 2709 E. 38th St. in Minneapolis.
