Small Business Saturday, Nov. 30

IRON RIVER—The Iron County Economic Chamber Alliance will host the third annual Shop Small Iron County event on Saturday, Nov. 30.
    Businesses all over Iron County will have special holiday sales that will be featured in an exclusive, free coupon booklet, which will be available at two hospitality stations – Tasty Rex Bakery on Superior Avenue in Crystal Falls and the newly-opening Delightful Desserts & More on Washington Avenue in Iron River.
    At these locations, shoppers can also enjoy coffee and treats and free Shop Small merchandise like canvas bags, stickers and more. These hospitality stations will open at 8 a.m. on Small Business Saturday.
    “Locally-owned businesses are the backbone of Iron County,” said Erika Sauter, chamber director of the ICECA. “They are the ones who sponsor community events, support school sports and educational initiatives, and get requests nearly daily for donations and contributions. They are worth supporting, and small purchases add up to make a big difference. We hope the community will really turn out to ‘shop small’ on Small Business Saturday.”
    To learn more about how communities benefit from shopping local and get details on Small Business Saturday, visit www.iron.org/shopsmall or call the ICECA at 265-3822.
    The event is endorsed by the nationally recognized Shop Small campaign on the traditional Saturday after Thanksgiving.
