You might not realize it, but every time you buy a flower arrangement, an ice cream cone, eat or buy a gift from a local business in Lake Hiawatha, you’re shopping small and making a difference.

In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents remain in our local community.

So, when you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday—and all year long—it can help add up to a big impact.  Support local November 30th. It’s a perfect time to shop for that local gift for the Holidays too!

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.
