Hello Shoppers. And welcome to Small Business Saturday 2019 . Today represents the tenth year of this shopping event.

Because of its importance to small businesses, we post about it each year. Small firms very much value our patronage. So, don’t only shop at a chain store. In addition, shop locally. If you do, odds are better that your small firms will still exist in 2020. As we discussed last year, Remember Small Business Saturday.

One thought on “%1$s”

  1. I’m so happy to read that this content type is posted every year. I can understand that consumers may be getting a better price at a big chain. However, Small Business Saturday is a primary example of small effort making a big impact. The perks of shopping local not only are the financial benefits but the camaraderie benefits of shopping at the neighbors business. As an avid snowboarder the local board shop has not only provided me with some solid gear throughout the years but I’ve also developed some great friends I don’t believe I would’ve met if I decided to shop at a big business.
