Why should I Shop Local? Everyone Wins!
Small businesses generate $68 of local economic return for every $100 spent with them.
Over $9.3 billion would be directly returned to our economy if every US family spent just $10 a month at a local business.
Businesses with fewer than 500 employees account for 99.7% of all US employers.
Small businesses donate 250% more than large businesses to community causes.
Small Business Saturday is a nationwide movement to encourage people to shop and support businesses within their local communities. This annual holiday falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, a day after Black Friday, and two days before Cyber Monday. Placing Small Business Saturday on this weekend, which marks the start of the holiday shopping season ensures that consumers keep local businesses in mind as they buy gifts.
