So are you exhausted yet? It's been an event-filled week. A huge Thanksgiving meal. Time with Family and Friends. Football. Leftovers. Black Friday really happening on Thursday. Actual Black Friday. Up until the big shopping event, no doubt you've been inundated with big deals and savings at the mall, big box stores, and online. We certainly have.
What about the small businesses in your community? Our towns and cities are filled with craftsmen, entrepreneurs, dreamers, merchants, and artisans who operate on a smaller scale.
Saturday, November 30th is about them. It's called Small Business Saturday. The idea is that you can give back to your community by shopping with your local, small businesses. In turn, the business owners are able to hire employees, spend money with other merchants, and the local ecosystem continues.
We ask that you do your part as we will. On Saturday, shop small. Shop local. Go out and meet the proprietors of your local bookstore, boutiques, cupcake shop, gallery, coffee house, and jeweler. Go online and search out the small businesses, like ours, that support these budding entrepreneurs. And then buy something from them- every dollar helps the community.
