The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) is honored to support the small business community in the tri-county region for Small Business Saturday this Saturday, Nov. 27.
Created in 2010 by American Express, the annual observance occurs the Saturday after Thanksgiving and supports small businesses nationwide to make a local and positive economic impact during the holiday season.
“Supporting our small businesses is critically important this holiday season as they continue to recover from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Michelle Rahl, vice president of member engagement for the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We all need to do our part and spend our dollars intentionally and locally,” In addition to supporting the businesses of our friends and neighbors, shopping locally can help mitigate any shipping or supply chain concerns for this holiday season.”
Shopping small is making a difference and making an impact throughout our community. This Saturday, the LRCC encourages residents to visit local and independently-owned stores – particularly those with ‘Shop Small’ branding and purchase various goods and services.
The LRCC supports Small Business Saturday as a “Neighborhood Champion,” which provides the organization with kits to distribute to a handful of businesses. The kit consists of branded materials to drive traffic on Nov. 27.
The businesses that received the kits from the LRCC include:
- Capital Discount
- Backyard BBQ
- Country Stitches
- Hair United
- The Peanut Shop
- Bradly’s Home and Garden
- Elderly Instruments
- Preuss Pets
- Moneyball Sportswear
