BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING
Hard to believe it's already Thanksgiving week. A lot of our local businesses will be opening early for shoppers’ convenience this Friday, traditionally known as Black Friday. Remember all it takes is for each of us to spend $100 of our holiday shopping budget right here at home and it puts over $2 million back in our local economy. Help your community prosper this holiday season by shopping locally.
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
This Saturday, Nov. 26 join Margie’s Book Nook, American Express and many other Susanville small businesses in celebrating Small Business Saturday. Instead of taking part in the over-indulgence of Black Friday in Reno visit Historic Uptown Susanville’s many fine small businesses and keep your holiday dollars local. Margie will also have a book signing from 1-3 p.m. with local author Shan de Wy talking about her book “Horses and Humans.” For details call Margie’s Book Nook at 257-2392.
