Save the date! Shop Small Saturday is November 27!

Small Business Saturday is a day solely dedicated to supporting small businesses in your community! According to American Express, consumers have spent nearly $140 billion across Small Business Saturdays combined since it began in 2010. Wow! Think about the impact you could have on your community this year.

You might not realize it, but every time you purchase a beverage from your favorite coffee shop or buy a gift from a local retailer or gallery, you’re shopping small and making a difference - one purchase at a time. You could be a key stakeholder in helping a local business survive in Sturgeon Bay.

Your community is calling on you this year! Shop local, and shop early. Small Business Saturday doesn’t have to be designated to one day and with supply chain issues across the country, many business owners are urging consumers to shop with plenty of time to spare before the holidays.

There are so many other ways to support local businesses than just purchasing goods. Leave a positive review, share or repost social media posts, buy gift cards for future use, tip generously,

Make a commitment each week to do one small thing for a small business in your community! A small purchase, online shout-out, or a note thanking them for being a staple in your community. Our communities would not be the same without them!
