Small Business Saturday occurs every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and it’s a day worth marking on your calendar. It’s more important than ever to support locally-owned shops and restaurants in your town—or by shopping online!
Helpful tips when shopping:
- If you choose to visit shops in person, be sure to wear a mask, check the store’s website for updated hours, and create an efficient plan so you avoid heavy crowds.
- If you’re shopping online, check the store’s Instagram or Facebook page for a coupon code—oftentimes a company will post there first!
- You could also take a hybrid approach: curbside pickup will get you out of the house but save you time.
- Don’t forget to support local restaurants. Take-out and delivery options are increasingly popular, even at smaller eateries.
- If you miss out on Saturday’s event, don’t worry. A lot of businesses are extending sales this year, so check their social media pages and websites.
