Small Biz Saturday
There is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but let’s not forget Small Business Saturday. Check out some of the local Madison area shops for all your holiday gift needs. Put your money where your heart is this season, in our local community. Most of these stores are offering online shopping and curbside pick-up, too.
Here’s a list of area local businesses to support. This is by no-means a complete list, just some ideas to get your wheels turning.
