Small Business Saturday 2019

Small businesses make a big impact in the community and Small Business Saturday on November 30 was a way to recognize these important businesses.

“In Stitches is my favorite small shop,” said Jan Brutcher as she took advance of special sales on needlework products November 30. In Stitches, located in Pear Tree Village, is a unique, locally owned and operated shop that attracts needlework fans from across the region.

Nancy Richards was shopping in Holly, Woods and Vines for holiday decorations. “I like all the selections at this store,” said Richards.

“The services we offer at Holly, Woods and Vines are more personal and people trust us,” said Jacob Hildabrand a store employee. “The owners are regularly on site and it’s more of a family environment.”

Studies estimate that $.67 of every dollar spent at a local small business stays in the community and supports schools, public safety, and community improvements.

The Mount Vernon Lee Chamber of Commerce hosts an online business directory with information about local stores. Search the directory for your next favorite store and support local businesses during the holidays and throughout the year!
