Shop Local on Small Business Saturday Nov. 29
Small Business Saturday is a special time to support all the local merchants in your city. For every $100 spent at these merchants, $68 returns to the community. Many such small businesses are featured in the League’s new book, “The Economics of Place: The Art of Building Great Communities.” Enjoy a drink at the Round Barn or St. Julian wineries in Baroda and Paw Paw, catch a movie at Traverse City’s State Theatre, indulge in a mouth-watering corned beef on rye at Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, and much more. Your support will make your whole community stronger. More.
