Every year, I encourage readers to support Small Business Saturday by shopping local. (Although, there’s no real reason you have to wait until tomorrow! You can do your Black Friday shopping in town.)
For holiday shoppers, categories below include businesses you can buy products from. They also include services that you can buy gift certificates to for friends and family members.
In case, you need a reminder why shopping local is so important:*
- Local businesses provide local jobs,
- Local businesses stock up on local produce and buy local services,
- Local businesses support our local charities and our local community (sports teams etc.),
- Local businesses reinvest in our local economy.
To view my directory of Southborough businesses, click here. Categories cover:
- Bakers/Confectioners/Food manufacturers
- Boutiques/Gift Shops/Markets/Retail Stores – Stores in town
- Fitness Studios/Gyms/Wellness
- Online sales by Resident Artisans and Entrepreneurs
- Restaurants/Coffee Shops
*Thanks to the Economic Development Committee’s former Coordinator Marijke Munsiff for the “reasons” reminder she shared in a past year.
