Extended Shop Small Saturday
The Laurentian Chamber of Commerce is proud to be the neighborhood champion for Small Business Saturday in our region. 2020 has been a terrible year for all of us, and our small businesses, bars and restaurants have been hit especially hard. To combat this and to bring additional help to our small businesses we are extending Small Business Saturday this year to become Small Business Week. From Saturday, November 28 until midnight on Saturday, December 5th we are encouraging everyone in the area to make a concerted effort to spend their money with our locally owned businesses. As a chamber we are lucky to have members like Fortune Bay Resort Casino, Giants Ridge, Northeast Technical Services, Iron Range Tourism, American Bank, Lakehead Constructors, NorthRidge Credit Union and Northern Community Credit Union who stepped forward to sponsor our event. Their monetary donations allowed us to offer one lucky shopper a grand prize of $1,000 cash they can use this Christmas season!
In order to qualify for the raffle all a shopper needs to do is make a purchase at a participating business and upload a picture of your receipt to the Laurentian Chamber phone app (make sure we can see at least the date and business name). On Monday, December 7th we’ll draw a grand prize winner and announce the name on social media.
Have fun this year and remember to shop small. Order out from local restaurants, buy from local businesses and make donations to local charities. We all need to weather this storm together so we can come out of it a stronger community.
