Small Business Saturday is November 28th we encourage you to think BIG and shop SMALL – here’s why: You keep more money in your local economy - Local businesses produce more income, jobs & taxes for communities than do big-box stores. In fact for every $100 spent $45 stays in local economy where as only $15 stays in local economy when you shop in big-box chain stores. You celebrate the uniqueness of & encourage your community - Supporting local businesses contributes to a community’s character and economic diversity. One-of-a-kind businesses are a distinctive part of the character of a community that buck the trend of homogenized big-box stores. You help the environment – Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases, requiring less transportation of goods. When you shop in your neighborhood you’re also saving time & money. No hassles and holiday crazy lines, save money between the more reasonable prices for more unique products, & personalized customer service big-box retailers never have. You support your neighbors – Local businesses are more accountable to their own communities. They’re owned by people who live in the community and are more invested in the community’s future. You know them, they know you, and that creates a special shopping experience. You benefit from expertise & invest in entrepreneurship.
