About Shop Second Saturday
Shop Second Saturday, is a year-long program created by the Retail Association of Maine. The program promotes Maine’s retail businesses, and with the support of participating retailers, helps to provide direct economic benefit to local communities.
Branded as Shop Second Saturday, the program encourages retailers to participate in specials on every second Saturday of each month. Retailers, large and small, can increase foot traffic, and create a fun shopping incentive with the statewide, buy-local initiative, Shop Second Saturday. This program plays on the growing enthusiasm for “buying local” which remains important for both Mainers and tourists alike.
Launched in August of 2014, there are now over 65 participating retailers, many with multiple locations. Businesses can sign up anytime online at shopsecondsaturday.com. Customers are invited to sign-up for email blasts and follow along on social media to stay up-to-date on the latest offers. It’s free to participate and to take advantage of finding the special offers from your favorite retailers!
