Shop Small / Local businesses gear up for Small Business Saturday

Pixabay  Special to The Forum

The village's "Shop Small Weekend" starts on Black Friday and continues through Sunday.

With that, 25 locally-owned shops in Fallon are participating in the nationwide movement November 25, hosted by the Fallon Chamber of Commerce.

"Shopping locally is a wonderful way to support the small businesses that make the town of Darien a unique place to live, do business and shop", Cator said. People of the Antigo area have the opportunity to patronize many great, local businesses and the owners that have taken their time to elaborate on how much they both support the community and cherish their business represent only a handful of what Langlade County has to offer.

Goldthwait said she tries to keep the store interesting and affordable while highlighting mostly Montana artists and vendors.

Mrs. Aucter said the chamber has received bags, floor maps, balloons and other promotional items that may be distributed to participating businesses in Small Business Saturday.

Before taking office in 2013, O'Brien was the founder and owner of GoldWorks at 499 Campbell Ave., a jewelry fix and retail shop that has operated in the heart of the downtown business district since 1988. Those businesses not only have what you need, when you need it, but give back to their community.

People are encouraged to celebrate Small Business Saturday by using #ShopSmall on Facebook and other social networks.

'Justice League' stumbles at the box office
The religious-themed animated film The Star also debuted taking out sixth place at $10 million with an A CinemaScore. That places the new Marvel movie somewhere between the two Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of global box office.

Do the math: Small businesses donate 250 percent more than larger businesses to non-profits and community causes.

In fact, 29,624 new jobs were created in 2014 alone, meaning that 47.90 percent of all employees in Minnesota were working for a small business that year.

In Macomb County, Shore said, she has seen growth in small businesses for the last 10 years, even during the recession.

"It's an uphill battle but it's exciting because we can offer the one thing that those two cannot and it's that small personal experience. I always knew I wanted my own menswear store, and when he retired, that's what I got", Norman said.

"I am once again proud to acknowledge the many quality and vital small businesses in every corner of our city and the invaluable contributions they make to our economy and the life of our community", said O'Brien, a former downtown merchant.

After a tasty hot dog and craft beer, we're going to hit up more west Wilson businesses before heading downtown where Krueger's Candies is offering a free half-pound of taffy with purchases of $20 or more as well as taking orders for stockings filled with sweets made by hand in the Nash Street location.
