While there will be lots of sales and specials, the Facebook page for the downtown businesses also said there are many other good reasons for shopping small: “Shopping at our downtown businesses supports our community and helps build a stronger downtown. Did you know on average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in our local community? That means shopping small could help bring things like better schools, smoother roads, and new jobs to our neighborhoods.”
