On Saturday, the downtown shops of St. Clairsville will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., celebrating Small Business Saturday. This event is aimed at encouraging people to shop locally and support small businesses during the holiday season. It’s an opportunity for small businesses to stay afloat and for shoppers to get some holiday shopping done.
Kathy Wood, a vendor at the Melting Pot Marketplace, spoke about the challenges faced by small businesses in competing with larger retailers. She emphasized the importance of supporting local businesses, especially in a small town like St. Clairsville, where they play a crucial role in the community’s economic growth and vitality.
The Melting Pot Marketplace and other downtown shops are excited to participate in Small Business Saturday and showcase their offerings to local shoppers. As new stores this year, they see it as an opportunity for the community to come together and show their support for small businesses in the area by shopping locally and making a difference in their community’s economy.
Small Business Saturday is more than just shopping; it’s about building relationships with local business owners, discovering unique products and services that can’t be found elsewhere, and supporting your community’s economic growth by choosing where you spend your money.
So mark your calendars for Small Business Saturday on November 27th from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., head down to St. Clairsville’s downtown shops, and make sure you do your part by supporting local businesses!
