On Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28, we celebrate the local businesses in our community. In fact, 62% of U.S. small businesses reported that they need to see consumer spending return to pre-COVID levels by the end of 2020 in order to stay in business. When you Shop Small this holiday season – and all year long – you can help create a big impact, reports American Express.
To help you shop small, there are free shuttle rides between Downtown Franklin and The Factory, 230 Franklin Rd., on Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
