Beaver Dam Chamber Encourages Shopping Local On Small Business Saturday

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce and its members are again touting the importance of ‘Small Business Saturday.’  Chamber President Phil Fritsche says in the tradition of Black Friday, the national Chamber of Commerce teamed up with local chapters and sponsor to promote ‘Small Business Saturday’ to bring people to the small, local mom-and-pop shops in the heart of America and get people to think about them when they do their holiday shopping. Fritsche says the Chamber will be taking a new approach to Small Business Saturday this year. Instead of a one-day effort, he says the focus will be to shop small and shop local through the end of the year.
