Small Business Saturday is This Week!
Small Business Saturday is right around the corner, and will take place on Saturday, November 28, 2020. This year more than ever before, our local small businesses need your support during the holiday season.

Most small businesses have an online presence and are providing curbside pickup. We encourage you to take the time to see what small businesses in your community have to offer before shopping at one of the big online shopping outlets. When you keep your money local, we all win!
