Small businesses in Spearfish are looking forward to November 28

SPEARFISH, S.D. — The annual Small Business Saturday is coming up in nine days on November 28 which some consider an American shopping holiday. Businesses will offer specials and deals in hopes to bring more customers into their stores.

Small businesses across the United States make up close to 50% of our country’s gross domestic product. By providing jobs and generating revenue for the city of Spearfish, small businesses play a big part in the community’s sustainability especially during the pandemic.

Madison Gould, Barista at Common Grounds said, “I hope that everyone stays safe with corona and everyone follows the guidelines. But I think it’s still gonna be nice to have that community to show that we are all still together even during these times.”

It is important for communities to support local businesses and to keep money generated back into the community. The Zonta Club of Spearfish even involved small businesses in the Festival of Trees this year by putting trees in stores to drive community members to shop local.

“We’re really hoping to, you know, promote those local businesses that are supporting Zonta and what we give back to the community. All we ask for is that people stay safe and still maintain their social distancing while going into those businesses, wear masks,” said Katie Peterson, Promotions Coordinator for Zonta Club of Spearfish.

Small Business Saturday will take place in Spearfish and across the U.S. on November 28.
