Oregon District Ready for Small Business Saturday
DAYTON -- With the Thanksgiving shopping frenzy about to commence, local businesses are looking for a piece of the pie, too. Oregon District locals are preparing for the national movement known as 'Small Business Saturday'.
For local shops like Eclectic Essentials, it's easy to get lost in the fray of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But sandwiched right in between is 'Small Business Saturday'.
"It's very important to at least come out and have a look," Colin Muse, owner of Eclectic Essentials, said on Wednesday.
Eighteen downtown business are participating, with each store providing their own discounts and special promotions on that creative and one-of-a-kind gift.
"We can often find you that product that is special that you're looking for that you cant find at a box store," Hilary Browning, associate at Brim Hat Shop & Accessories told us.
Brim Hat Shop on East Fifth calls Saturday an 'alternative to Black Friday,' where it's all about putting dollars back into Dayton.
"You're not just supporting us as a small business but also everyone who supplies us, many of whom live in Dayton. You're supporting an entire system of small makers," Browning said.
Diverting even a small amount of your holiday shopping can make a significant impact Eclectic Essentials - which is offering 10 percent off all purchases.
And this Saturday helps them stay afloat.
"It's one of our biggest days of the year so it's very important to the small guys," Muse stated.
The Dayton Better Business Bureau is one of the biggest supporters of the local shopping day, but advises you do your research. Know the return policy because small businesses normally have a more rigid policy.
"Make sure if you keep the receipt do you get an in-store coupon or a full refund. And if you're getting a gift what can that person expect if they need to return that particular product," John North, Dayton BBB President, said on Wednesday.
Last year, nationwide, consumers spent an estimated $5.5 billion on Small Business Saturday.
