There’s much hype over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but don’t skip out on Small Business Saturday. Your local small businesses have those “just-the-right” gift for the person in your life who likes something off the beaten path, a little more individualized that can’t be bought in the larger chain stores or online.
In addition to more individualized products, often one-of-a-kind gifts, there is atmosphere. Get away from the crowds. Have an “old school” shopping experience. Get to know your neighbors and your neighborhood again.
Make it a whole event, take the family, dine locally, window shop, stroll and take in the entire experience and the spirit of the holiday season.
