Undoubtedly, localities across Virginia rallied their communities around the small businesses at the heart of their downtowns during Small Business Saturday! As commercial districts continue to feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, local Main Street programs have pivoted their traditional #ShopSmall plans or started new traditions to accommodate health and safety guidelines. Let us hear how your community celebrated Small Business Saturday!
Virginia Main Street (VMS) would like to craft a blog post, highlighting how Virginia communities celebrated small businesses and encouraged consumers to shop locally at the start of the holiday shopping season. For a chance to be featured, please email a brief description of your community’s efforts / program and a few high quality images to firstname.lastname@example.org by COB Friday, December 03, 2021. We’d love to showcase the fun and exciting ways communities throughout the Commonwealth supported the lifeblood of local economies, small businesses!
