Small businesses help ensure that local economies stay strong and vibrant. Encourage your friends and family to #ShopSmall on November 25th and all year long!
As a small business, it’s tough to compete with Black Friday deals. Many of our local small businesses are finding ways to bring customers through the door with fun incentives, discounts and more. Whether it’s a gift, BOGO offer, discount or shopping bucks, etc. customers will appreciate the offer and and return that appreciation by shopping with you.
Several small businesses in our communities have gone a step further and joined forces with events to showcase their products and services.
