Black Friday is a chance for us to score great deals from well-known brands. Cyber Monday is the day many people shop for deals online. But there is a special, heartfelt day in between.  Saturday, November 24th is an opportunity to spread the wealth in the community. Today is Small Business Saturday, a day to support the small businesses in your area.

If you’re looking for a personal, special experience while shopping then look no further than Main Street! Small business owners dedicate their lives to their work and are full of enthusiasm for what they do. You can easily find a unique gift for someone by checking out your local shops. Shopping local also means your money stays in your area. You’re helping to sustain your local economy when you shop at your downtown shops. Small businesses are a crucial part of our communities. They’re run by our neighbors and help keep our towns and cities unique and special. Over half of all working Americans own or work for a small business. It can be difficult to run an independent business, especially in this economy. We can show our appreciation for local business owners by celebrating Small Business Saturday. Let’s shop small today and help keep our local shops in business
