Paulding Chamber: Shop Locally Today

The Paulding Chamber of Commerce is encouraging holiday shoppers to support small businesses by taking part in Small Business Saturday.

Now entering its third year, Small Business Saturday falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” a day dedicated to supporting the local, independently owned businesses that add character to neighborhoods across the country.

The Paulding Chamber of Commerce supports “Small Business Saturday” by encouraging a number of ways that shoppers and retailers alike can get involved and support each other:

  • Shop Locally: By shopping locally, you are showing your support for small businesses and creating good will within the communities where you work and live. Make a day of it by shopping with friends and dining out at your favorite small restaurants.
  • Business owners, make the day your own: Small businesses are known for having outstanding customer service and offering unique products. Think about having special promotions and join forces with neighboring small businesses to create a block party or holiday event. Don't forget to leverage Small Business Saturday marketing tools on www.facebook.com/shopsmall.
  • Spread the word: "Like" the Paulding Chamber Facebook page. Tell your family, friends and loyal customers about Small Business Saturday on your social networks.

"We’re excited to be part of the Small Business Saturday," Paulding Chamber President/CEO Carolyn Wright said in a news release. "We encourage all of you to shop small on November 24, 2012 and help spread the word. Let's make Small Business Saturday, the biggest shopping day of them all—we'll see you shopping in Paulding.
