Small Business Saturday has become a popular shopping day, following Black Friday.
Today, cities all across Michigan seemed to embrace it, especially Traverse City.
Not even what felt like a mini blizzard, could stop local shoppers.
Many stores downtown held special deals and limited time offers.
M-22 General Manager Jonny Tornga loved seeing so many people supporting local businesses, despite the snow.
“This is very timely, I feel like we’re in a snow globe—tis’ the season,” Tornga said. “We have Christmas music on in the store and yeah…happy shoppers!”
Shopping local also keeps the money local.
This weekend was definitely a good one for those working downtown.
