Small Business Saturday

Standard

© Copyright 2011 CorbisCorporationToday is Small Business Saturday!

What’s that, you ask?  Here in the US, it’s all tied into the shopping frenzy that follows Thanksgiving.  On Thursday, we gave thanks for all that we hold near and dear, hence Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is followed by Black Friday, which kicks off the December shopping madness, better known as Giftmas, err, Christmas.

Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for consumers to support their local merchants.  After all, dollars spent in local establishments have three times more impact on community than those spent in national chains.  To paraphrase – what’s spent here, stays here.

Have you ever wondered what’s in that shop with the tongue-twister of a name?  Now’s the chance to find out!

That corner store with the wonderful window displays?  Poke your head in, no telling what you’ll discover.
