Saturday is National Small Business Saturday -- a day to visit and buy from the many locally owned businesses. Last year I was surprised that many folks (even shop owners!) didn't know about this movement. So I am taking this opportunity to ask everyone to support our friends and neighbors with small shops. They provide many goods and services that aren't mass-produced.
Many of the dollars spent with them remain in the community. And you'll help them stay in business.
So even if you take advantage of Black Friday sales at the large stores, please go out again on Saturday and shop small to support the small businesses that are an integral part of Walla Walla.
Those living in surrounding towns, please do the same.
