Small businesses feed our communities. They keep our main streets thriving and employ nearly half of the American workforce. Supporting small business means you’re supporting your local economy, local business, tax base, schools, and infrastructure. Your holiday shopping will put food on the tables of people you know.
Some ways to celebrate this day:
- Check your holiday shopping list for those who would like handcrafted items and buy locally.
- Small businesses may specialize in one area or they may offer a variety of services. Don’t hesitate to walk in and explore the store. You may be surprised to find what they offer, and discover the one thing you’ve been looking for.
- Post your purchases and use the hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday.
