Remember to Shop Local on Small Business Saturday!

Saturday, November 30, 2019

St. John the Baptist Parish – Parish officials would like to remind residents to shop local on Small Business Saturday as well as throughout the holiday shopping season.

Please visit for an online, searchable directory of local businesses, as well as a wealth of information on the economic, environmental and "feel-good" benefits of buying local. Businesses can register to be a part of the campaign and there is no cost for membership.

Residents and businesses should also be on the lookout for the annual Shop Local trivia game in the mail with clues to shopping at local businesses. If the correct answers are selected and returned, residents will be entered in a drawing to win gift cards and other prizes from local retailers.

Residents can mail in completed trivia games to 1811 W. Airline Hwy., LaPlace 70068, or drop them off in the Shop Local collection boxes located at the new Government Complex - Parish President’s Reception Desk (1811 W. Airline Hwy., LaPlace) or in the St. John Courthouse foyer (2393 Highway 18, Edgard).

“Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season are excellent opportunities to support local merchants who significantly support our community,” said Parish President Natalie Robottom.
