Small Business Saturday in Adams County


Event encourages residents to shop local for the holidays – 

By Patricia Beech – 

Dreaming of finding Black Friday discounts? Why spend hours in line when you can help local businesses grow by participating Nov. 25 in Small Business Saturday (SBS)?
On Small Business Saturday, retailers nationwide will open their doors to shoppers looking for locally made, handcrafted items or other merchandise offered by artisans, entrepreneurs and area shops.
SBS focuses on supporting and helping local entrepreneurs and merchants keep their brick-and-mortar businesses alive while offering shoppers an alternative to big-box stores and online retail giants.
“People around here really do support Small Business Saturday,” says Shawn Vogler, owner of the Adams County Florist shop. “It’s important because it encourages people to buy local – after all if you can buy it here that means the money stays here in our county.”
