Get ready for Small Business Saturday! Small Business Saturday falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving which is November 28th this year. Right along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday should motivate you to engage and shop with the mom-and-pop shops in your town on this day rather than the big box retailers. They run great sales and the money more often than not continues to circulate in the lo9cal economy. Here’s a quote from the U.S. Small Business Administration: “Saturday, November 28, 2020 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. This year, we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Please join the SBA and organizations across the country in supporting your local small businesses by shopping at a small business.”

Please join me in supporting our local businesses. While not every business is a member of the local chamber of commerce, I encourage you to check out the businesses listed there.
