Small Business Saturday & Cyber Monday

With all the hype of Black Friday, why not reduce your stress and enjoy your Thanksgiving.  Don’t worry about missing out on the shopping days.  There is still plenty of time to shop on Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.

Saturday, November 30th has been designated as Small Business Saturday.  Small Business Saturday was first observed in 2010 to help encourage and promote small local businesses.

I am not going to lie; the big box retailers can be convenient at times.  But what is truly enjoyable is the warm inviting feeling you get when you shop locally, specifically in the Midtown and Riverwalk Districts.  I personally enjoy finding those special unique gifts for my friends and family.

Celebrate Small Business Saturday by going to your favorite local small business and support them and their family during this holiday season.  And while you’re at it, make a pledge to shop locally throughout the year.  When doing so, it creates a ripple effect and positively impacts our community.  If you don’t have a favorite here are a few suggestions:

Coffee Houses & Bakeries

Bookstores

Boutiques & Misc.

Restaurants

If you are one that cannot stand crowds and enjoys shopping from the comfort of your own home, then Cyber Monday is for you!

You can always find great deals online and some of our favorites at 3G include:
