Celebrate locally with Small Business Saturday
By Ann Epperson McDermitt, Executive Director of Russellville Main Street, and Cassie L. Medley, Executive Director of the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce
Welcome to the beating heart of our community — our local small businesses. As executive directors of Russellville Main Street and the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, we’ve seen firsthand the impact these businesses have on our county.
These are the businesses which show up to support our local schools and community efforts. Now, as the holiday season approaches, we invite you to join us in supporting our local entrepreneurs on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 25, and throughout the holiday season.
Local small businesses are the backbone of our community, and they represent hard work, dreams and the spirit that defines us. It’s more than a date on the calendar; it’s a chance for each of us to contribute to the vitality of our community.
Let’s make this day a celebration of unity and entrepreneurship supporting our community’s growth one purchase at a time. Save yourself time and gas money by shopping at our local businesses first. Join us in embracing the spirit of community on Small Business Saturday.
