Shop Local

Since today is Small Business Saturday, I hope you will do some shopping at a small business in your neighborhood, village, town or city today! 

The concept was created last year in grassroots fashion and has spread, with a number of important business sponsors this year and the U.S. Small Business Administration also on board. According to their data, small businesses have generated two out of every three net new jobs in the U.S. over the past 15 years and they employ over half of all private sector employees.

For more information on how to support Small Business Saturday in your area, check out the SBA site, the Facebook page (which had 2.6 million "likes" as of yesterday) or use #SmallBizSat on

Happy shopping!

  1. I don't shop Thanksgiving weekend as a rule, but also as a rule, I support local small businesses year 'round. I hope folks will carry on the concept after this weekend.
