Shop Small Business Saturday and Support Brownwood's Local Businesses

Nov 13, 2023

Mark your calendars for Shop Small Business Saturday on November 25th, a day dedicated to supporting the small businesses that make our communities thrive. This year, we encourage you to make a conscious effort to shop local and discover the unique offerings that Brownwood's businesses provide.

Shopping small has a significant impact on our local economy. When we spend our money at locally owned businesses, we are investing directly into our community. Studies have shown that for every $100 spent at a small business, $68 stays in the local economy, compared to only $30 when spent at a national chain. This means that shopping small has a direct and positive impact on our local jobs, schools, and infrastructure.
