Rolla Chamber to Celebrate Small Business Saturday

Mark your calendars for the 7th annual Small Business Saturday that will be celebrated in Rolla on Saturday, November 26.  On this day, consumers can play a part in supporting our local economy and small business owners by shopping and dining local businesses.

By shopping local and small, the majority of the money stays within our community.  Small business owners support our community, our charities, create jobs, and we appreciate each and every one of them.   Small Business Saturday provides us an opportunity to honor and celebrate the hardworking business owners that are fueling our local economy.

The Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce would like to invite the public to attend a special ribbon cutting on Monday, November 21 at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of 7th & Pine.  During this ribbon cutting Mayor Lou Magdits will be presenting a special Small Business Saturday proclamation. 

For more information on this effort, or for a list of local businesses, please contact the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce at 573-364-3577 or www.rollachamber.org.

 


Small Business Saturday

SBS Website

November 27, 2010 was the first ever (nationally celebrated) Small Business Saturday. This day was created to celebrate the Shop Small movement to drive shoppers to local merchants across the U.S. It is a national effort to help independently owned merchants gain more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year.

  • There are an estimated 28 million small businesses in America.
  • Small businesses account for 55% of all jobs in the US.
  • Small business owners are our neighbors. They care about our community and give back to it. They support our local charities, causes, and youth sports.

Small Business Saturday celebrates the American Dream. Shop small on Saturday, November 28 and support our local entrepreneurs.
