Small business Saturday in Rapid City
RAPID CITY, S.D. -Small businesses gave small business Saturday a second shot. It was originally scheduled for last Saturday but the storm pushed most business to host it this weekend. Several markets and sales happened all over the Black Hills.
For the eighth year in a row, the Kountry Junkin Vintage Market was at the Fairgrounds. Over 60 vendors were present selling handcrafted decorations, gifts, and food.
The Kountry Junkin Market had over 2,000 visitors. There was an entry fee of five dollars for all shoppers, and all of the entry fee proceeds go towards Cops for Kids.
“That stays local, that goes to the rapid city police department and they take kids shopping so that the kids can shop for their families,” said the owner of Kountry Junkin, Amy Gustafson.
Mitzi’s Book Store gave 20 percent off all autographed books and 30 percent off knitting and crocheting kits. Over 200 customers purchased items from the book store.
Who’s Toy House also hosted sales throughout the week and gave 20 percent off all toy trains for train day.
