A group of four people holding Shop Small Business Saturday, SBDC and #ShopSmallPA signs.

PASBDC CELEBRATES SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
The PASBDC centers encourage gift buyers to shop locally at the start of the holiday shopping season. The goal of Small Business Saturday, Nov. 27, is to remind consumers that they play a key role in helping the small businesses in their community thrive and encourage them to get out and shop and dine at local businesses. This week, the PASBDC network will visit local storefronts and area businesses, dropping off Small Business Saturday gear to help business owners dress up their locations for the day. Keep an eye out for signs and stickers while you’re shopping. #ShopSmallPA PASBDC.org
