Shop Small

By Staff | Nov 26, 2014

You know Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but do you recall the day you’re supposed to “Shop Small”?

This Saturday is what has become known as Small Business Saturday. It is a day-after all the hoopla promoted by the big box stores has settled down-to return to the heart of your community and make a big difference with your holiday budget. It is a day when you are asked to shop small-to buy from the “mom and pop” store down the street or pay your neighbor rather than a Chinese worker for a new Christmas decoration.

Studies say that each dollar spent at a local business returns to the community five fold-through local taxes, employee wages, supply purchases, school funding, social services, and contributions to non-profit endeavors.

Now that’s what we call a good deal-for everyone!
