Where to Shop on Small Business Saturday – Gabrielle

The holiday shopping season is sure to look and feel a bit different this year. But, while it may be tempting to avoid shops altogether and do all of your gift-buying online, there’s more reason than ever this year to get out and about on Small Business Saturday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, small businesses around the area will roll out the sales and the welcome mat for holiday shoppers. With the pandemic hitting independently owned shops especially hard, the holiday rush will be the vital boost that many need. And luckily, there are plenty of small businesses to support right near your Royal Athena apartment.

One standout is Gabrielle, an upscale clothing boutique specializing in special occasion women’s apparel. From cocktail dresses to gowns, the shop features a diverse selection of dresses, in all sizes, styles and price points. Apart from clothing, the shop also offers accessories, including shoes, jewelry, purses and much more. If there’s a woman on your shopping list who has a taste for the fancy, this is a perfect shopping spot. Gabrielle also features a specialty line for girls and teens, so no matter the ages of the ladies on your list, you can find something here.

Gabrielle is a family-owned shop, run by a mother and her daughter-in-law—making it the perfect place to support on Small Business Saturday. While it’s easy enough to find apparel and accessories online, being able to pick the gifts out yourself adds more personalization and meaning to your gift, all while your purchases support a small, family-owned venture. The shopping holiday is always an important way for shoppers to give back to the local community and, this season more than any other, is a great time to say thanks to the merchants who could use our support.
