Post image for Small Business Saturday: Support Southborough business owners tomorrow (Updated-Again)

Above: This Saturday is the annual campaign to show support for small businesses.

Every year, the public is encouraged to support Small Business Saturday by shopping local. During these tough economic times, it’s more important than ever.

Whether you’re shopping for gifts or buying your holiday decorations or preparing to entertain – consider shopping in town this Saturday.

Even if you aren’t celebrating a holiday, you finished your preparations early, or you can’t deal with Christmas shopping yet – you can still take part.

Celebrate date night, splurge on a gourmet coffee, get your nails done, pick up a nice bottle of wine, or buy a new accessory just for you. There’s plenty of ways to show your support for small business.

Looking for where to shop (or dine)? Check out the listings of Southborough retail businesses below.*

*Unfortunately, there is no up-to date online directory available for Southborough businesses. So, if I missed any, please post a comment or email mysouthborough@gmail.com.

If you are looking for more business in town, the EDC informs me that their printed Business Directory is more up to date than their online database. You can pick one up at the Town House.

**Updated (11/29/20 4:25 pm): A reader alerted me that Starbucks has been closed since Wednesday. The Starbucks website indicates it is currently closed through this Friday, but lists hours for Saturday. (There was no outgoing voicemail message or any notice/explanation on its Facebook page.)

Updated (11/29/20 4:52 pm): The owners of Shop Chloe King notified me that their business launched (out of a Southborough home) on Saturday.

Updated (11/29/20 5:05 pm): I learned that Southborough is home of another business, Manion’s Vanilla.

Updated (12/1/20 10:16 am): I added several companies and even new categories.

Updated (12/1/20 11:12 am): I had noted there is no updated directory of Southborough businesses. The EDC informs me that their printed directory is more up to date than their online database. You can pick one a copy at the Town House.

Updated (12/1/20 11:43 am): I added another fitness company.

Updated (12/2/20 9:08 am): I added another market.

Updated (12/2/20 12:49 pm): I added another shop.

Thank you Beth for highlighting some of our local businesses in this post and urging everyone to shop local. In case, we need a reminder why shopping local is so important:
1. Local businesses provide local jobs,
2. Local businesses stock up on local produce and buy local services;
3. Local businesses support our local charities and our local community (sports teams etc.),
4. Local businesses reinvest in our local economy.

I would also like to take this opportunity to alert your readers to the SHOP SOBO Local Business Directory. This directory is updated and published annually and includes all DBA registered businesses in Southborough. Hard copies of the directory can be picked up for free at the Town House. An electronic version is available on the town website (www.southboroughedc.com).

Unfortunately, that directory isn’t that up to date. However, it is a good place to look for businesses in categories not included in my post.
