Small Business Saturday Upcoming Kirksville Holiday Events

Tomorrow will be Small Business Saturday across the country, and the City of Kirksville encourages you to stay local and “Shop Small.” Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, and promoted through the social media hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. American consumers have reported spending more than $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants through this event. In Kirksville you can take part in the Shop Small Cookie Crawl where you will get a Shop Small bag and cookies as you visit participating local, downtown businesses. The event begins at 10:00am tomorrow and lasts until the cookies run out. See more details online from Main Street Kirksville at: facebook.com/downtownkirksville
