Across the country, Small Business Saturday has become a day during holiday shopping season (yes, it has its own season) that puts the spotlight on locally owned businesses, either through big sales, special events or simple encouragements to support the independently run stores in your neighborhood.
In order to get people ready for Nov. 24, Patch will be putting together a list of all the Tinley Park businesses participating in Small Business Saturday. But we need your help.
- Do you own a shop or boutique that will have discounts for that day?
- Are you a manager at a restaurant that will have special deals for shoppers?
- Or are you just an avid shopper who has a finely attuned sixth sense that allows you to know when and where all the sales are?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, we want you to spill what you know about shopping for Small Business Saturday bargains. Tell us what special sales and events your business has on tap for Saturday, Nov. 24. And yes, include anything else you might be doing on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the entire holiday weekend. You also can send the information to Tinley Park Patch editor Joe Vince at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be posting and updating the list throughout next week as part of our Countdown to Small Business Saturday.
REMEMBER: The sooner you let us know what you're doing, the sooner it gets on the list.
