City of Douglas Main Street announced it will participate in this year’s American Express Small Business Saturday, taking place November 28.
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local small businesses.
“Douglas Main Street recognizes the importance of supporting small business in Douglas,” says Pattie Merritt, Main Street Coordinator. “Exhibitors will be located on the sidewalk of North Peterson Avenue, adjacent to the public parking lot. Some exhibitors participating are part of the Georgia initiatives Georgia Made, Georgia Grown” or Eat Fresh, Eat Local.”
November 28 will mark the sixth annual Small Business Saturday, a day to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Small Business Saturday was created in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers. To date, more than 3.3 million Facebook users “liked” the Small Business Saturday page.
