SHOP SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
Did you know?
When you shop with local merchants, your money stays close to home; supporting the parks, recreation centers, libraries and other things that make this community a great place to live.
Shopping local and when you visit the many local shops we have to choose from in Independence, Missouri you are keeping your money in the community! Shop Independence on SBS and be sure to take some pictures of the business you patronize and the items you purchase.
Post those pics on our BuyiN page and you are automatically registered to win some cool prizes! Now isn’t that a way-cool bonus just for shopping right here at home?! Have fun, share this event and invite your friends. Be sure to use the hashtag #ShopIndep on Small Business Saturday so we can share your experience!
Small businesses are not just the backbone of our economy, they are the heart of our community. Consider shopping locally as an investment in our/your community.
Studies show that for every $100 spent at locally-owned independent businesses, $68 remained in the community versus $43 for chain stores.
