Local, national efforts aim to aid small businesses
The public is encouraged to participate in Shop Small Saturday. Federal legislation to level the playing field between small businesses and Internet retailers is also afoot. Both efforts are worthy of support.
Good things come in small packages – and from small businesses.
The latest expansion of Sauk Valley Shop Small’s public awareness campaign is designed to encourage more people to shop in locally owned businesses in Dixon, Rock Falls and Sterling.
Saturday has been designated as Shop Small Saturday for about 30 participating merchants. Those independent small businesses will have specials that day. Some will feature artists and musicians, which are pillars of the “cultural shopping” approach that enriches lives while helping small merchants stand apart from big-box retailers.
