Ashland Prepares for Small Business Saturday

It's a National Day Celebrating Local Businesses

Communities across the Northland, are inviting people to consider doing their holiday shopping at local stores.

Many small businesses will have events and deals to make the shopping experience more exciting. The Ashland chamber of Commerce will hold a drawing, where you can submit the receipts from your small business shopping to win prizes.

“In Ashland, we’re so fortunate because we have a very very high number of local and small businesses operating here in town, so this is a great celebration for our community,” Mary Mcphetridge, the executive director at the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.

Small Business Saturday was started by American Express in 2010 to encourage people across the Nation to support small local businesses.
