BBB Paso del Norte: ‘Buy El Paso Day’ set for Saturday, December 5th

Better Business Bureau Paso del Norte announced Monday afternoon a dedicated day to support hometown businesses: Buy El Paso Day.

Scheduled for Saturday, December 5, officials share that Buy El Paso Day is how residents can safely show other shoppers just how committed they are to our community free of charge.

“Buy El Paso Day kicks off the holiday shopping season which will be critical for small businesses in El Paso, many of which have endured and innovated to survive a year which has been full of unprecedented challenges,” said Marybeth Stevens, president of Better Business Bureau Paso del Norte.

“As we have since the beginning of the Buy El Paso campaign, it’s also critically important that we continue to highlight, support and celebrate local businesses which have committed to serving you safely.”

On Buy El Paso Day, supporters simply need to make a purchase in any amount from a restaurant or retail business in the directory at All of them have taken the City of El Paso’s Pledge to Safety and many of them are offering curbside pick-up or online ordering. While supplies last, they’ll get a free, limited edition Mercado Bag with their in-person purchase.

“Showing off your support for local businesses never goes out of style,” Stevens said. “Small businesses across the country are facing a long road to economic recovery and these bags will allow you to show your commitment local businesses for years to come.”
