November 24 marks the ninth annual Small Business Saturday, a day to support Charlotte’s local businesses. As a small business owner, let me explain why it’s important to shop small. These businesses create jobs, boost the economy, and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Just imagine Charlotte without any of it’s small/local business. Small Business Saturday will provide an opportunity for Charlotte residents to show their community spirit by putting money back into our local economy.
Charlotte is a fast growing city. Somehow the small business owners are still going strong in this changing city. There is so much talent in Charlotte and over 200 of them will be joining Small Business Saturday. It can seem overwhelming. So we have selected a few of our favorites for you!
