Small Business Saturday — celebrated last month — is a day to promote shopping at local small businesses. While it’s encouraging to see one day devoted to local entrepreneurs, it’s important to remember that small businesses drive our local economy year-round. There are so many reasons to shop local — support a neighbor’s store, purchase handmade products unique to our area, not to mention save on gas by traveling locally.
You can even make a day of it by visiting the local coffee shop, stopping by one of our shopping plazas in town and dining at a local eatery. I encourage you to visit our small businesses, this season and every season.

Here’s the list!

For the love of Rudolph, we have a self-serve, free calendar where you can post away.
