Small Business

Kicking off on Small Business Saturday, November 24, area small businesses are offering holiday deals!

With Small Businesses, even one small purchase can make a big difference. This holiday season, consider who sponsors the little league teams, who supports community events, and who your neighbor is. These small business owners are people in your community, who often frequent and support other small businesses in our community. A small investment and initiative to buy your holiday gifts locally can have a ripple effect.
