Tips for Shopping Small Businesses

It’s easy to get behind a theme like Small Business Saturday. Here’s how to do it right.

  1. Do lunch there too

After you finish shopping, grab a bite to eat. Hook & Barrel is a nice local place for a funky fresh dinner near Ocean Reef Resort.

  1. Budget for it

A dose of planning gets you a long way after the day of recognition. Set aside a portion of your money to spend only locally. It will reinforce your habit.

  1. Follow them

A lasting declaration of support comes when you follow and interact on social media. You’ll keep up-to-date and organically promote the business.
