Support Local, Small Businesses This Saturday

This Saturday is “Small Business Saturday,” a great time not only to begin holiday shopping, but also to support our local retailers, local jobs and local economy.

Shop Samll.

Since its establishment in 2010, well over 250 million people have shopped on Small Business Saturdays and spent an estimated $50 billion at independently owned businesses.

Studies show that for every $100 spent at a neighborhood business, roughly $68 stays in our local economy. The same amount spent at a large business keeps only $43 in our local economy.

So let’s show our support for Connecticut’s economy, its small businesses, and our friends and neighbors—this weekend, shop small and shop local.
