Small businesses are the heart and soul of the community
Macon County is a great place to shop any day of the year, but with the holidays right around the corner, shopping locally is easier and more important than ever. Maconians should think locally first when planning their holiday shopping trips to get great local deals, unique, one-ofa- kind items, and quality goods that will last long after the new year.
With Thanksgiving just a few days away, local businesses are counting on residents to patronize their stores and put them in the black this holiday season. Think beyond the usual Black Friday deals, and extend your holiday shopping all weekend long to participate in the national movement, Small Business Saturday. You’ll not only boost the economy of your hometown, you’ll also get fabulous merchandise, festive gift wrapping, and concierge service to help you find that perfect gift for everyone on your list. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses. This day, Small Business Saturday, will be held this year on Nov. 24.
