Small Business Saturday Promotes Local Businesses
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Frederick, MD – Saturday, November 26th marks “Small Business Saturday”, a day established to help support local merchants and the economy on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. “The Small Business Saturday” movement started nationally last year to counter the big box store sales on Black Friday. Mayor Randy McClement is encouraging people in the City of Frederick to take part and shop locally.

“Shopping locally is about personal service, that personal touch, remembering your name, having a sample for you to taste or remembering your favorite color. It’s about seeing people you know on the streets, in the stores and at the restaurants and supporting our local economy here in Frederick.” said Mayor McClement.

Whether it’s Under the Sun and Chanticleer Shoes on the Golden Mile or one of the many unique specialty retail shops in historic Downtown or any of the other many stores around the City, you’re sure to find that perfect gift for the holidays at one of Frederick’s many small, independently owned stores.

The City of Frederick and the Department of Economic Development encourage you to ‘shop small’ and locally and help fuel our local economy. Also, “Like” Small Business Saturday on Facebook!

DED is a full-service economic development department of the City of Frederick with the mission to create economic opportunity in the City through job creation, revitalization and reinvestment. To learn more visit www.businessinfrederick.com or call at 301-600-6360.
