Small Business Saturday: November 27

We’ve all heard about the container ship back up.  Why wait for online retailers to stock up?  Is there any better excuse to go out to see what’s out there and shop local and support small businesses?  Small Business Saturday is on November 27 this year.  For special events on the day check out our local BIDs: The Graham Avenue BID (grahamavenuebid.org)  and the Grand Street BID (www.grandstreetbk.org ) for updates.  Also why wait for Small Business Saturday to support our local businesses, when there’s no time like the present!
