Downtown Paris to participate in Small Business Saturday

Shop locally

Small retailers know that it is hard to compete with the big box stores when it comes to prices. "I think it's fantastic".

One of the businesses taking part in Small Business Saturday is Southern Sisters, in both Greer and Fountain Inn.

A year ago shoppers were reported to have spent $15.4 billion at independent retailers and restaurants on Small Business Saturday, Bowmar said.

Bloomberg.com suggests that more people are ditching the malls to shop at small businesses close to home. Owners of small businesses also contribute to community life in a number of ways, including support for local nonprofits.

Martin Ross is not only supporting black-owned businesses on Saturday, but every day.

It's a common refrain across the four-county GLOW region.

"I have to have big blowout sales to compete with the big box store because I can't compete any other way", Mueller said.

Lawrence sales taxes comprise 40 percent of the city's general fund revenue this year, in turn supporting "our entire community", Zogry said. These people are your friends and neighbors who have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you.

Nor do you have to sacrifice anything by shopping locally.

It's those relationships that can give these small businesses an advantage, Seymour said.

But what does that look like on the local level?

"You need us, and we need you", said Rogers.

Buying from the local brick-and-mortar store means being able to actually see and touch items, ask questions, even try on clothing.

The Eighteen-O-Three Taproom will have the Ohio State-Michigan game will be on the big screen, door prizes will be offered by several of the Uptowne businesses and shoppers can participate in the Kiwanis Kids Toy Drive. After the monthly Friday Night Shop Hop and Saturday's Grand Illumination, Small Business Saturday will present another opportunity to get out and enjoy downtown Troy, Troy Main Street Director Nicole Loy said. "We have hundreds of small businesses that offer things that you can not find anywhere else".

Stores along Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward are getting ready for Small Business Saturday on November 25th!

"We get to hear about how pleased people were with their gifts last season, and how someone's aunt loves lavender and someone's daughters adore tropical fruit scents."Lapic said her staff find themselves covered in shea butter and Dead Sea mud "every night during the season", but are "exhausted and exhilarated".

There is no question that retail is changing.

Founded in 2010 by American Express, "Shop Small" is now an annual shopping tradition that was created to support small businesses and celebrate communities across the country.
