Small Business Saturday in South Baltimore

Nov 21, 2017

Thanksgiving week is full of family, food, fun and, of course, shopping. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, the days after Thanksgiving have become a super bowl for retailers. We here at Anthem House love our Baltimore community, and that’s why our favorite shopping event is Small Business Saturday. Since its conception in 2010, Small Business Saturday has become a celebration of local businesses. So we are challenging you to shop small this holiday season! The stores below may not all participate in Small Business Saturday, but each is a small business that is making our community even stronger. Charm City Run Photo from

With eight locations across Maryland, Charm City Run specializes in apparel, shoes and accessories for running and walking. They also sponsor tons of events throughout the year. The Locust Point location opened five years ago, and is thriving in our active community. This year Charm City Run is hosting an event on Small Business Saturday. You can register to participate in a fun run and then have breakfast back at your nearest Charm City Run location. What a great way to get in a work out after Thanksgiving!
