Small Business Saturday-November 29

This time of year is full of traditions starting with this week. Most Americans will fill themselves silly with turkey on Thursday. Then many will not even go to bed Thursday evening as they prepare to fight the large crowds and spend their life savings at the big box stores for another tradition, Black Friday.

A few years back American Express started a new campaign to highlight small businesses. This has become known as Small Business Saturday and it takes place each year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This is a great opportunity for small business owners to showcase their unique products and for the community to support their neighbors by spending thier money locally.

Small businesses are vital to rural counties like ours and cannot survive without your support. There are salons and barbers in all our towns who can give you a fresh look for the season. Retail shops will be offering unique gifts, special discounts and extended hours to help you start off your holiday shopping. After a day of shopping nobody wants to go home and cook dinner so don’t forget to dine small too. Our downtown’s need your support; will you #shopsmall and #dinesmall this Saturday?

Contact the town offices for more details.
