Support your local independent businesses by shopping with them on Small Business Saturday rather than at a chain store on Black Friday.

If you spend $100 at a locally-owned business, $68 of that $100 stays in your community. Spent at a chain store, only $43 stays in your community. Shop online – nothing for your local economy.

One great way to shop local is with your local craft fairs. If you’re in the Denver Metro Area, there are some good ones coming up.
