Don’t forget about Small Business Saturday

LEWISBURG — Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday there is “Small Business Saturday,” a day dedicated to supporting local businesses.

Linda Sterling is Executive Director of the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership.  She said, “It’s  really important to keep small businesses and downtowns top of mind.  It’s easy to forget small businesses because they don’t have the advertising and marketing budgets that the larger corporations do.”

Small Business Saturday is sponsored by American Express, and allows card members to get $25 back if they shop locally Saturday.  You can get more information at www.americanexpress.com.

Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation sponsors a similar promotion called “Hometown Holiday,” where shopping locally registers people to win a $1000 shopping spree to a participating local store.  You can get more details at www.wkok.com.  (Codi Jade)
