Small Business Saturday is November 30th 
Please visit us on Small Business Saturday, the day we all Shop Small and support small, local businesses around the country and the island. 

Here are ten reasons to shop locally!
From the Institute for Local Self Reliance
1.  Local Character and Prosperity

In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character have an economic advantage.

2.  Community Well-Being

Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.

3. Read more...   
So stop by on November 30th, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and do your part to help make this Small Business Saturday one of the biggest shopping days of the year for small businesses.
