Shop SMALL Saturday (NOT big at the MALL)
"Shop Small" on Nov. 25, 2017, the Saturday after Thanksgiving — and shop small EVERY DAY of the year, too. It's a great way to help the local economy. Because "shopping small" keeps your dollars at home. Shop Small means your dollars will not be sent somewhere else.
When you Shop Small this Sat., Nov. 25, 2017, you will be voting with your dollars; you will be voting for small entrepreneurs, not for big box stores and other big corporations.
YOUR DOLLARS ARE YOUR VOTES
Doing so will send the U.S. Congress a message: they should be helping the poor and the middle class more than they should be helping the rich and big corporations.
The truth: the U.S. Congress led by Republicans has proposed a tax plan that will help the rich and the corporations much more than small businesses and the middle class.
So "Shop Small" on Nov. 25, 2017, and every day for the rest of the year. Doing so will get noticed in Washington, D.C.
VOTE WITH YOUR SHOPPING DOLLARS
So vote with you dollars this holiday and Christmas shopping season: Shop Small on Nov. 25th — and every day of the year if you care to strengthen the small business owner as well as the Asheville Area and Western North Carolina.
