Small Business Saturday

SHOP SMALL, SHOP LOCAL

 

Small Business Saturday is November 26th!  That means it’s time to get out and support the shops, services and eateries that make up YOUR local business district!

 

According to “Civic Economics: A National Summary Report,” for every $100 spent at locally owned small businesses and retailers, $48 will stay in the local economy.  That is 48% of YOUR MONEY staying right here in YOUR COMMUNITY.  Shopping local means more than running errands.  It is supporting your neighborhood, your community, and your city.  It was also reported by the Institute For Local Self-Reliance that supporting “locally owned businesses built strong communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships.”

 

By supporting the businesses in Bixby Knolls, you are continuing to support positive change in the community.  The neighborhood continues to be vibrant, your property values rise, and the ultimate sense of community pride continues to strive to be the highest in the city.
