Small Business Saturday – shop local

Skip the big box retailers and chain eateries, support local businesses and help your local community and economy grow.  Today is Small Business Saturday a day dedicated to supporting small businesses during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. According to an article in the American Express (which sponsors the initiative) Open Forum website, “(Small Business Saturday) is a great way to support local businesses. One study shows $45 of every $100 spent at small, local businesses stays in the local economy. National chains only keep local $13 of every $100 spent.”
