(Community Matters 59) BC Chamber Echoes Rallying Cry to ‘Shop Small’

Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce President Kara Beer joins Community Matters on “Small Business Saturday” to talk about the origins of the post-Black Friday retail theme.

With Black Friday shopping mostly focused on larger national on-site and online retailers, the “Shop Small” effort the following day encourages holiday shoppers to make a conscious effort to support smaller, local retailers.

Beer says more than 80 percent of the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce membership is considered a small business.
