You might not realize it, but every time you grab coffee at one of your favorite spots, pick up a gift in one of Corsicana’s unique retail shops or choose a bouquet of flowers for delivery, you’re shopping small and making a difference.
In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the United States, approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. So when you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday — and all year long — it can help add up to a big impact.
Over the years, Small Business Saturday spending has reached a reported estimate of $103 billion since the day it began in 2010 — that’s $103 billion over the last nine Saturday events alone.
Now in its 10th year, Small Business Saturday on November 30 continues to be an annual holiday shopping tradition — just one part of the larger Shop Small Movement that supports small businesses every day and everywhere.
In Corsicana, here’s a partial list of offers and activities Downtown and around town available as of our print timing. But pop into any favorite store, see what’s happening on this special day and thank local shop owners for being a big part of our daily lives.
