It’s usually the big shopping day after Thanksgiving that gets all the publicity, but we have to remember Small Business Saturday on November 25, 2017!

Local businesses are the cornerstone of a strong community. Mayor Craig A. Moe supports Small Business Saturday and read a proclamation at the November 13th Mayor and City Council Meeting, declaring November 25th Small Business Saturday

“It supports our local businesses because they create jobs, boost our local economy and preserve our neighborhoods,” and Mayor Moe went on to say, “The City of Laurel wishes to celebrate local small businesses and the contributions they make to our local economy and community.”

Small Business Saturday is a national campaign to celebrate local entrepreneurs, showing residents of towns across the Nation that you can find that special gift at the local clothier on Main Street or drop in at the coffee shop for that morning caffeine boost or stop by the Mom and Pop Convenience store and pick up milk on the way home from work or just sit down for a tasty dinner with the family at that little out of the way place!

To help support this initiative and make the term Small Business Saturday as popular as Black Friday, we’re asking you to join millions of Americans to Shop Small at your favorite local stores and help fuel the economy on Saturday, November 25, 2017, as well as all year long.

When we all shop small, we make a BIG difference in our community!
