Shop Small, Support Local, Energize Our Community!

Once Upon A Time Bookstore is pleased to announce Indies First day, on Saturday, November 27, 2021. Independent businesses throughout Montrose Shopping Park are coming together to celebrate their local bonds as part of the annual Small Business Saturday activities. We are excited to host some local authors throughout the day in-front of our shop as well as exciting prizes and sales

Indies First – a collaboration among publishers, retailers, and authors– is an annual campaign to celebrate independent bookstores and the communities that support them. Hundreds of indies across the country will be hosting local authors and holding events on November 27. Other participating Indies First stores and authors may be found on IndieBound.org.

Small Business Saturday, founded by American Express in 2010, is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is a day dedicated to helping support the local businesses that help to create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods.
