Small Business Saturday

(11.26) We should be shopping locally all year round, but especially at this time of year. This is the make-or-break season for many small businesses. The owners of these stores, restaurants, and coffee shops are your neighbors. They pay taxes here. If you want a bookstore in your neighborhood, you have to shop there. (Or you can keep sending your money to the billionaire whose life has been dedicated to destroying all competition. Your call.) Small Business Saturday has been cosponsored by the SBA since 2011.

Saturday, November 26, 2022 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. This year, we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Please join SBA and organizations across the country in supporting your local small businesses by shopping at a small business.

Seen here is the Frog & Toad on Hope Street, a street loaded with independent businesses of all types. Also checkout Wickenden Street, Westminster Street downtown, and Wayland Square for walkable concentrations of shops and eateries.

The WaterFire Arts Center is holding an Art Mart from 11am to 4pm.

Or stop in at Gather Glass on upper Atwells Avenue right next to Nolan’s Corner Pub.

Riffraff Bookstore & Bar is over on Valley Street.

A great source for new ideas is the Guide to Rhode Island Vintage.

Support your local small business!
