Small Business Saturday AND Grand Opening Celebrations
Saturday, November 25th
- Shopping local creates jobs that provide added spending in the our community’s economy and helps create even more jobs.
- Local shops invest more in our hometown. They support local charities, schools, and community events which financially impact Ionia. Local shopping supports neighbors, friends and relatives.
- Shopping local saves you money. Shipping and handling costs for larger items make the overall price of items more.
- Shopping local retains our community. Without the support of shopping in the local community, restaurants and services are forced to close.
- Shopping local retains our distinctiveness. Our community’s businesses respond quicker to the needs of customers and stock products to meet the changing population’s needs.
- Shopping local helps reduce environmental impact. Local shops often stock more locally sourced goods saving long distant freighting.
- Local shops can be easily reached especially for the elderly and young people and those without transportation. Shop Small Business Saturday November 25th!
