Consumers will be busy this holiday weekend

Craig Barritt

The report also found that shoppers tend to be "drawn" to Black Friday and Small Business Saturday deals, then procrastinate to finish their holiday shopping until the last minute-which is why December 23 is a big day at stores. There were over 6,700 neighborhood champions who organized events and activities to rally their neighborhoods last year, which was a 63 percent increase from the year prior.

Small Business Saturday is dedicated to supporting the diverse range of local businesses that create jobs, help boost the economy, and enhance neighborhoods around the country.

The holiday shopping countdown is on, and many communities are once again encouraging consumers to think small when it comes time to buy.

Hours for businesses on Small Business Saturday will vary depending on the business. "And while our attention might be more focused this Saturday, we need to remember that support for our neighbors and friends in business should be extended the other 364 days of the year as well".

"We feel supporting other small businesses is essential because we know the sacrifices made by families to see their dreams come true", Davis said.

In 2016 the Small Business Saturday events reportedly brought in more than $16 billion nationally, a 14 percent increase from a year ago.

A Shop Small hospitality booth will be set up in Pineapple Grove by the Banyan tree in front of Addison Gallery (206 Ne 2nd Street, Delray Beach) from 10 1 p.m. and from 1:30 4 front of Hands Office & Art Supply (325 E. Atlantic Ave.).

Some local businesses participating are Fort Payne Footworks & Outdoors, Addie Kate's Farmhouse Finds Fort Payne, Katherine's Gallery and Custom Framing, LLC, Relics Antiques and Collectibles, The Spot Coffee Shop, Elizabeth's Closet, Boom Town Makers Market, Pink Door Boutique, The Rusted Arrow, The Package Store, Fort Payne, AL, Golden Treasures/ Treasures, Hammer's Fort Payne, The Salvation Army Fort Payne/DeKalb County, Big Mill Co - Artisans and Antiques, The Strand, Tiger Lily Flowers and Gifts, Traci's, Ashe.

Hellebuyck said he thought the Warren location would do small lawn mowers and handheld weed whips when it opened, but it has blossomed into mostly commercial business.

When purchasing a gift for someone, it's always smart to ask for a gift receipt. "(Small businesses) are the backbone of our whole national economy, and the largest employer". If someone makes a purchase, have your team members create bonus goody bags as incentives which can include brochures, a business card, discount flyers to redeem on their next visit, and sample products in one of the Small Business Saturday tote bags. "Most customers accept what they get because of the hassle of sending something back when you ordered it online". "There is a love that goes in to all of these businesses".

The day began in 2010 and across the country an estimated 112 million customers shopped local on that day past year.
