This will be the third year that Small Business Saturday has taken consumers by storm, and this time, it’s for keeps! As part of the initiative this year, we ordered and passed out a bunch of Small Business Saturday welcome mats to some local small businesses. It was heartening to see their faces light up as we dropped them off all around town. What was also nice to see is how many actually had signage in their places promoting the event! In years past, many didn’t know it was even going on, but this year, many seemed to know that Nov. 24 was indeed a big day! Can if be that the word is finally getting out? Hope so!
So, today’s post is short and sweet and just a reminder to our community here in Boulder county and beyond: do your neighbors and community the honor of spending some of your holiday time with them. Whether it’s dining, lodging, or shopping, your dollars work harder and closer to home when you spend them there! Show your support by thinking local first!
