Making shopping local your holiday tradition, beginning with Small Business Saturday on Nov. 27.
Shopping small can be a big deal, and not only because you avoid the crowds and frenzy. When consumers make the choice to shop small and support local businesses, purchases have thee times the impact, according to StayLocal.org. That’s because funds recirculate in the local economy longer.
