Small Business Saturday

When you Shop Small, you’re not just supporting neighborhood favorites – you’re investing in a community. Whether you live here or are just visiting, we hope you’ll use our Holiday Shopping Guide to find the perfect gifts this holiday season – and remember to Shop Small all year long.

Shopping locally benefits you: 1) it’s convenient. You don’t have to go out of town or wait for delayed shipping. You walk out of the store with your purchase in hand and you don’t have to take a long trip back home. 2) You’ll find more unique items. The recipients of your gifts will be amazing at your thoughtfulness when you give them something not easily found in a bigger retailer. 3) The level of service you receive at a locally owned business is far superior than what you’ll get a big box store. Small business owners will get to know you, and help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Shopping locally benefits the whole community: On average, locally owned businesses employ nearly 50% of the US workforce. 60% of every dollar spent in a locally owned businesses in reinvested in the community. Comparatively, only 40% of every dollar spent at a chain store stays in the community. Local business owners are your friends and neighbors, and are on the front lines of supporting the community.

Pontiac is proud to have a wide variety of locally owned businesses and we encourage everyone to Shop Small this holiday season and beyond.
