What a great day we had last weekend on Small Business Saturday! Our businesses did a great job on providing lots of reasons for the public to visit Downtown Mesquite.

We received great positive coverage from regional media as well. This piece from CBS 11 highlighted several businesses. See it at this link.

Another highlight of the event was the video series produced by videography students at Mesquite Independent School District. Though Small Business Saturday is over, we thought you'd enjoy seeing these videos and learning more about the featured businesses. We plan on partnering with the classes again soon to feature even more of our Downtown Mesquite businesses. Special thanks to the students and their instructor, Mr. Donny Coursey. See the videos here.

Although Small Business Saturday is over, the City of Mesquite's reminder to Shop Mesquite continues. Let's support all of our local Mesquite businesses and, as you're shopping, use #ShopMesquiteTX in posts you share about your great local shopping experience. Also, a new website, www.ShopMesquiteTX.com, has launched. This new site offers you a comprehensive guide to businesses in Mesquite. Just click on "Shop Our Local Businesses" at the top of the page, and you'll see a wide variety of business categories.

A great way to support our local businesses is to be sure to stop by one of our Downtown Mesquite restaurants for a bite to eat before or after the event!
