Small Business Saturday is the day to support your local, independent retailers. Black Friday and Cyber Monday usually benefit the large mega stores and online retailers, but Small Business Saturday is a way of ensuring that your dollars are kept in your local community, benefiting the small stores that make our neighborhoods interesting and engaging.
After the feast with the family, after the craziness of Black Friday and before you spend more than you intended on Cyber Monday, get to your local shopping community and see the treasures that they offer that are different than anything you can get at a Mega Store.
Here in Denver, walk Antique row on S. Broadway, visit S. Pearl and S. Gaylord with their unique stores and restaurants, walk the 16th Street Mall…you will find unique, affordable, one of a kind gifts that are more creative and interesting than the typical Black Friday or Cyber Monday offerings and you help grow your community, ensure we continue to have these unique stores and keep the revenue in your neighborhood. It is the small businesses and restaurants that are the fabric of our communities and give us a reason to leave the house and walk around.
Break the pattern of buying the same old, same old stuff from Costco, Walmart and Amazon….shop local…at least this one Saturday of the holiday season.
