Small business Saturday is a local Carteret County initiative to help local retailers thrive during the holiday season and to celebrate local owners who live and promote our local communities.
Readers are encouraged to click on the title of this article and use the comment form at the bottom to discuss local efforts around this initiative.
Several local organizations are helping to distribute promotional materials to help out the shop local scene.
Small business Saturday is now in it’s 10th year locally, and organizations like Downtown Morehead City, Inc and the small business center at the local community college are helping to get the word out.
It is important to remember that as we move closer and closer to the Interstate 42 corridor completion, our local small business owners will see increased internet marketing, web design, and other marketing efforts geared towards local consumers.
In an effort to help keep local dollars in our community, we see this initiative as a great thing to support.
