Northern Michigan Businesses Look Forward to Small Business Saturday

Just because black Friday is almost over, doesn’t mean the holiday shopping has to end!

It’s nearly small business Saturday, a time dedicated to supporting your community by shopping locally.

Many small businesses across the country, and even right here in Northern Michigan will be offering discounts for customers.

Some will also have giveaways!

In Clare, locally-owned businesses are luring customers in with a raffle.

“It gives all the small business owners an opportunity to promote their businesses, have the locals and people that are traveling from out of town, give them an opportunity to shop at our stores get to know us a little better,” Carla Rellinger, sales associate said.

You can enter your name into the raffle by turning a receipt of more than $5 from any local business at the Clare Chamber’s welcome table on Mcewan Street, as well as the Doherty Hotel or Ace Hardware.
