Saturday, November 27, 2021 is officially Small Business Saturday in the United States. This Small Business Saturday we encourage you to Shop Local! A number of our Chamber members are offering special deals, discounts, and giveaways for shoppers who decide to spend their money in our great little community. Check below for details.
According to Civil Economics: Andersonville Study of Retail Economics – for every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. There are plenty of reasons to shop local:
• You create local jobs
• You invest in and reward entrepreneurship
• You build relationships with your neighbors
• Sales taxes collected from your purchases stay in the community
• You minimize economic impact by consuming less fuel and packaging
The money you spend at local businesses has a BIG impact. Everyone benefits—from your neighbors who own and operate local businesses to the municipalities who maintain your roads and fund the school system. Everyone benefits, including you! When you shop local you help create a healthier economy and a happier community.
Businesses participating in our Shop Local promotion are listed in alphabetical order. The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce encourages you to support these participating members and ALL local businesses on Small Business Saturday and every day of the year.
