Beaver Dam Chamber Celebrating ‘Small Business Saturday’

11/25/17 – The Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce and its members are again participating in ‘Small Business Saturday.’  Chamber President Phil Fritsche says the event is a response to the time and money spent at big box stores on Black Friday by encouraging shoppers to support local, family-run businesses. As part of the Small Business Saturday, the ‘Ring In The Holidays Passport Contest’ will span the entire holiday shopping season through December 24. Fritsche says shoppers will again be able to obtain a Passport that they will fill with a dozen or more stamps from local businesses. New this year, the Passport can be completed via social media using your smart phone. Passports can be obtained today (Saturday) from 8am until 10am at Higher Grounds Coffee Shop. As part of the Twitter promotion, each business will have its own picture frame and contestants need to take a picture of themselves in the picture frame and tweet with the hashtag #ShopSmallBD. A list of participating businesses is on the Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce website:
