This holiday season, Berry Digital Solutions, LLC will be shining a spotlight on several local businesses as a part of a #ShopLocal Campaign. As a small, local business ourselves, we love the idea of shopping local and supporting your community by simply spending your dollars at local businesses versus the big box stores and Fortune 500 companies.
Small Business Saturday is a movement that gains more and more steam nationally as each year passes. The shopping holiday is held annually on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. First observed on November 27, 2010, it is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commercestores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.
Leading up to and through Small Business Saturday, Berry Digital Solutions, LLC will utilize our blog and Facebook page to shine a local spotlight on small businesses in Champaign & Logan Counties. We want to feature businesses with unique and great gift ideas this holiday season. If you know of any worth highlighting or any small businesses we may have missed, please share them in the comments or message us on Facebook. And don't forget to #ShopLocal on this upcoming Small Business Saturday, and year round when you can!
