The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as Small Business Saturday; a day created by American Express to highlight local retailers amongst the hustle and bustle of Black Friday’s big box stores. This year Small Business Saturday is on November 30th and the Utica Zoo Gift Shop has gifts and unique treasures sure to please those of all ages.Open from 10am-3pm daily throughout the winter season (Nov.1-March 31), the Gift Shop offers shoppers an array of items to fit every budget. From favorite Zoo animal plush, to educational books and activities; there is something for the child in everyone.

Looking for that special one of a kind gift for the one who has it all? Pick up a hand painted feather or behind the scenes Animal Encounter certificate! Create your own Utica Zoo gift bundle and pick out the perfect mix of apparel, hats, mugs, cups and more! And remember, membership to the Zoo offers a whole year of fun and is always the perfect fit!

The best thing about shopping at the Zoo is knowing every dollar you spend in the Utica Zoo Gift Shop stays at the Utica Zoo. It is only through community support that the Zoo can continue to improve and grow while keeping its animals happy and healthy. So this year, instead of fighting the crowds and waiting hours in lines, think local and shop the Utica Zoo Gift Shop!
