Now, more than ever, it is vitally important for the local community to support locally owned businesses. As a resource in and for the community, Macaroni Kid is a strong advocate of and supporter for Small Business Saturday, a celebration of small businesses and local communities across the United States. That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to play a role in supporting small and locally owned businesses on Saturday, November 25th, this year’s Small Business Saturday.
Need a little motivation to shop local? Check out our top three reasons to shop, eat or play at your favorite neighborhood business.
#1: It shows pride for your community!
#2: You’ll experience the personal touch!
#3: You’ll stimulate the local economy!
Small businesses are many times the “hidden gems” of a community, but they don’t need to be. Share your experiences (and your purchases!) with your friends and let everyone you meet know about these great businesses that make their homes in the same town that you do. When the “best kept secrets” become “well-known,” the community – along with everyone who lives there – thrives!
