November 24
Small Business Saturday


Did you know…

There are 23 million small businesses in the US at which 54% of sales happen? When you buy local, about $68 out of $100 stays in the community while only about $43 of each $100 spent at a chain retailer does.

When you shop local, the business owner is often directly connected to every employee in the store. That leads to a personal approach that often means better customer service. Avoid the frantic, stressful rush of Black Friday by shopping local on Small Business Saturday, November 24, 2018.
