shoppers to support their neighbors

This Saturday, shoppers have an opportunity to support their lakes area neighbors by supporting Small Busines Saturday.

The U.S. Small Business Administration notes Nov. 24 is a day to “celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.” Shopping at a small business is a way to directly support the local economy and help small business owners retain jobs right here.
