Support small businesses in the Poconos on Saturday
Avoid long lines and crowded parking lots while supporting your local business owners at the same time.
Small Business Saturday takes place on November 27th.
Consider these facts: According to the Small Business Administration Law Office, small businesses make up 99.6% of all businesses in Pennsylvania and employ nearly half the workforce in the state. To put this in perspective, for every $ 100 you spend in a local business, about $ 68 remains in our local economy.
Here are some discounts available at local stores:
The all-day event takes place on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in participating shops and restaurants on Main Street.
