The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) is proud to support the tri-county small business community once again for Small Business Saturday this Saturday, November 26.
Created in 2010 by American Express, this annual shopping holiday occurs the Saturday after Thanksgiving and encourages shoppers to support small businesses nationwide during one of the biggest shopping periods of the year.
“Supporting our small businesses is always important but even more so this year as companies navigate continued challenges such as inflation, talent needs and supply chain concerns,” said Michelle Rahl, vice president of membership and marketing for the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We encourage all shoppers to be intentional with their holiday spending and ensure that we are keeping these dollars in our local community. Our small businesses bring the uniqueness and character to our region and make the Greater Lansing region a more engaging place to live, work, and raise a family.”
The holidays are all about giving – and the best gift you can give local businesses is your support. This Saturday, the LRCC encourages residents to visit their favorite local and independently owned retailers, restaurants and other small businesses and purchase their services or products.
The LRCC supports Small Business Saturday as a “Neighborhood Champion,” which provides the organization with materials to distribute to select businesses. The kit consists of branded items to drive awareness of Small Business Saturday on November 26.
The businesses that received the kits from the LRCC include:
- Country Stitches
- The Peanut Shop
- Bradly’s Home and Garden
- Elderly Instruments
- Nothing Bundt Cakes
- Curvaceous Lingerie Impression 5 Science Center
- Hyacinth House
