Shop Small DelawarePresented by the Delaware Small Business Chamber

The Delaware Small Business Chamber(DSBC) is North Delaware’s biggest advocate for small businesses.  Founder Bob Older envisioned doing something BIG, NEW and EXCITING to make an impact and create awareness for the small business community in Delaware on Small Business Saturday, November 29th.  Bob pondered and a CONVOY came to mind. Thinking outside the box! This had never been done before – a simply unique, fun and creative way to engage potential customers. Small business owners with decorated or wrapped vehicles hosting their business logos coming together for a small business vehicle parade – honking and cruising from Prices Corner to Possum Park and back, showing their LOCAL SMALL spirit and introducing you to their business. Sounds pretty honking fun to us!
