Small Business Saturday

Just think, what three independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say Hello. Pick up something that would bring a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around.

If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 the employed population did that.

For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online, and nothing comes home.

The number of people it takes to start the trend... is you.
