The Thanksgiving season brings many things to look forward to, including turkey, stuffing, family gatherings and more. In addition to Thanksgiving traditions, many brave the lines and elements to participate in Black Friday- the Friday after thanksgiving known for doorbuster deals on electronics, clothing and more. However, the Saturday after Thanksgiving also brings fun shopping traditions as well. The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as Small Business Saturday, a day to support shopping local in the community.
With all the hype surrounding the Thanksgiving Day season, there are many reasons to take the opportunity on Saturday to shop local. Here are the top four reasons to put down the leftover turkey legs and get out and shop local.
- Shopping local makes an economic impact on the community in which you live.
Where you invest your dollars, you are investing in life that is happening around you. Shopping local allows your your local community to thrive and provides an economic boost that allows for a number of benefits such as enhanced community infrastructure, schools, hospitals, etc.
- Shopping local provides jobs for more residents.
When you get out and shop local, you are providing means to create more jobs for more residents. More jobs leads to a stronger community with more opportunities to work and grow.
- Shopping local provides unique products and services.
Shopping local allows you to receive goods and services that big box stores or companies may not provide. With local businesses, you receive unique products and services, and you as a customer benefit from a wider selection.
- Shopping local allows for committed owners.
When you shop local, you allow the owners of the businesses to commit to the community with their time and resources. This commitment leads to new levels of growth in the community.
