A Message from your Chamber

Small Business Saturday is November 24th. So why should you care?

Small businesses are the heart of our communities. Your local plumber, car mechanic, boutique, restaurants, markets and more give us places to go for help or to entertain while still staying in our neighborhoods.

The owners of these small businesses are brave souls. They do not have million-dollar marketing budgets nor teams to help them grow or even maintain their businesses. They have their hard work, their loyal staff and you, their customer.

Start thinking locally when you need something or a place to go. Which businesses right here in our area could you buy that unique gift from? Which restaurant employees always have a smile greeting you and may even know you personally? Where can you drop your car off for repairs and they offer you a ride home or better, from where you could walk home?

Think of these places and patronize them. You will be helping a hard-working business owner support their family instead of stock holders of large corporations. Take this Saturday to say “Hi” to our local businesses! There will be snacks on November 24th at many of Main Street Reisterstown shops too!

As you may know, many of the local businesses are our valued members. Please click below to look at our directory for ideas on where to go.

See you on November 24th in the small shops of Reisterstown, Owings Mills and Glyndon!
