small business saturday
With all the local merchant open houses, sales events and personalized service cheerfully provided, it certainly shouldn’t be difficult for all of us to participate in “Small Business Saturday” on Nov. 30. The concept is quite simple: Visit and patronize those businesses that employ our neighbors and reinvest our money close to home. Small businesses employ about half of all private sector employees and for every $100 spent with a small business, $68 returns to the community. We are joining thousands across this great country in asking you to support those shops and restaurants that are the heartbeat of our community and local economy. Good things happen throughout your community and to the various organizations that make it such a great place when you invest in your town by buying locally. In the most positive way it truly epitomizes the age-old axiom “what goes around, comes around.”
