Where to buy local in the beach cities this Small Business Saturday

Shop locally

Sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday encourages shoppers to support local independent stores on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Last year, 112 million people went out to "shop small" on Small Business Saturday, a 13 percent increase from 2015.

But Mueller said the competition for locally-owned businesses with retail chains and online shopping houses is fierce.

"I think small business is what drives the economy", said Rich LaVecchia, who owns Charleston Angler shops in Mount Pleasant and West Ashley.

The U.S. Small Business Administration reports that the 28 million small businesses in the country account for 54 percent of all sales.

"That's essentially the same breakdown for the county and the state".

American Express coined the day in 2010 as a means to shop local.

According to American Express, who founded the effort in 2010, 112 million consumers shopped with small businesses previous year and small business owners generated $15.4 billion. It is traditionally one of the busiest holiday shopping weekends of the year.

Shopping local on Saturday is a way to thank these people for taking that risk on Williston, and helping contribute to the community's quality of life, Skaare added. They employ your sons and daughters for their first jobs, and they know your name when you walk in the door. "They're passionate about what they do". Williston is among communities nationwide that will promote Small Business Saturday, to raise awareness of the important role that small business plays in the health of a community.

Jason Smith is a reporter at The Valdosta Daily Times.

Surveys show 72-percent of consumers say Small Business Saturday inspires them to "shop small" all year long.

"We need to say thank you to these guys who took a risk on our community", she said.

The Downtown Business Group will have a booth at Main Street Square on Saturday morning offering free hot coffee, Small Business Saturday swag (gift items), and a guide to specials for the day offered by local businesses.

"Small Business Saturday provides people an opportunity to discover and celebrate the variety of small businesses that make their communities thrive", said Elizabeth Rutledge, executive vice president, global advertising and brand management at American Express.

Streator START will be hosting a selfie promotion during Small Business Saturday. It is easy and convenient to order something online and have it delivered to your doorstep.

Holiday shopping is about more than buying things.

"We have been exceeding (sales) each month year to date, especially since there are no other Radio Shacks nearby anymore", Via said.
