Small Business Saturday – A Success!
Thank you to everyone who participated in Small Business Saturday! We started early in the morning with free coffee at Grounds for Celebration handing out Shop Small bags and directions for our Small Business Passport Program. Over 80 people received information about our event and some took us up on the effort and went business to business to get their “Passport” stamped.
During the day we visited with each participating partner and gained some great insight on retail ideas for next year… Our partners (in the photos) included (L to R)
- Grounds for Celebration
- Midwest Heritage Bank – Windsor Heights
- The Bake Shoppe
- Marco’s Pizza of Windsor Heights
- Lauren Campbell Photography (Such an artist!)
- American Trust Bank
- Saison Kitchen & Pub and Baru 66
- Peterson Holistic Services
- Plaza Florists and Gifts
- Windsor Heights Dairy Queen
- 515 Brewing Company
- I Work and Play Store
Remember, “Shop Small” shouldn’t be just one day out of the year. Remember that it is small businesses that contribute to the job market and our overall economic development, punching way above their weight.
