Now more than ever, shopping small is vital to our local businesses this holiday season. 2020 has been a year of challenges and our local shops have felt that impact. Many have struggled to find a way to just keep the doors open. These shop owners are our neighbors and friends, who are a part of our communities. They are local experts that want to build relationships with their customers. When we support these businesses, money stays in our community. It is estimated that 74% of money spent locally, remains in the local economy.
This year, Small Business Saturday is November 28 - the day designated to support small businesses and communities across the country. Cedar County, let's make a commitment to as much as we can through out the whole year support our local business who give so much to our communities. Its good for your community, good for you, and it good for Cedar County.
