Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday.
The effort began in 2010 and encourages people to get out and support local shops.
Not only is shopping local good for businesses and their customers, it also benefits the overall community.
“The great thing about small businesses is they’re local. The people who own them and run them, live here, they work here, they play here, so the money stays in the community,” says Stephanie Pence, the Downtown Terre Haute Coordinator.
Lots of local stores will offer special deals on Saturday and throughout the holiday season.
It’s not just retail stores you can support. Don’t forget about local restaurants and non-profits that may offer special deals on memberships or sponsorships.
