5 Big Reasons to Shop Small for the Holidays in Glenwood Springs

Ready or not, holiday shopping season is in full swing. The countdown to Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa has begun. Unfortunately, for most of us shopping for family and friends isn’t always a high priority until it’s crunch time. Take the stress out of holiday shopping and take care of business in Glenwood Springs. When you stay at Hotel Colorado you can relax in historic style, walk across the street to soak at the world’s largest hot springs pool, and check off every item on your gift-giving list all in one town. 

While Saturday, November 27 is officially Shop Small Saturday, a nationally designated shopping day that takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving, you don’t have to wait until then to get started. Shopping small is an idea that has taken off and been embraced by thoughtful consumers across the nation. It originated in 2010 by American Express. The day encourages individuals to support local communities by shopping at small businesses and dining at neighborhood restaurants. Unlike the tussle of Black Friday or hype of Cyber Monday, shopping small in Glenwood Springs is a relaxing, laid-back experience that gets the holiday shopping job done.
