We appreciate your business every day but this is a big weekend for small retailers. 
Save your local economy...three stores at a time.

Think about which three independently owned stores you’d miss most if they were gone. Especially your Local Bead Store! Stop in, say hello, and pick a little something up. That’s how they stay around.

If just half the employed U.S. population spent $50 each
month in independently owned stores, their purchases
would generate $42,629,700,000 in revenue.*

For every $100 spent in independently owned stores,
$68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and
other expenditures. In a national chain, only $43 stays here.
Spend it online and nothing comes home.

The number of people it takes to start the trend...you.

Save your local economy.
