Small Business Saturday is the day we celebrate the Shop Small movement to drive shoppers to local merchants all over the Quad Cities region. Did you know that small businesses drive 60-80% of new job growth and employ half of all private sector employees? Studies have shown that 48 percent of purchases made at local independent businesses go right back into the community. When you shop small, your tax dollars stay locally, helping to grow our region.
When shopping at small businesses in the region, show your support by using the hashtag #shopsmallqc
