Its Small Business Saturday this weekend”

Tis the season to Shop Small!

On Nov. 25, many of these Darien businesses are participating in "Shop Small Saturday".

Small Business Saturday is one of the lesser known shopping holidays falling between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The opportunity to provide for the community on a personal basis encapsulates the ideals of Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 by American Express at a time when small businesses were hurting from an economy in recession. You are helping your neighbor, who may go on to shop small with another local business. "We are proud to partner with American Express to bring attention to the importance of small business and look forward to another successful Small Business Saturday".

All small businesses are invited to set up a booth in the center's expansive parking lot for as long as suits their needs.

This weekend, there will be 42 Lompoc establishments taking part in the event, which organizers say has had an impact on local stores and consumers. This re-circulation of money creates jobs, encourages prosperity, supports our tax base and strengthens the overall economic base of our community.
