Be Local Buy Local’ on Small Business Saturday this Nov. 24: The City of Palm Coast is a ‘Be Local Buy Local’ kind of community! To support local retailers and restaurants as the holiday shopping season kicks off, the City is participating in the national celebration of Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24. The Palm Coast City Council is planning to proclaim Nov. 24 – the Saturday after Thanksgiving – as Small Business Saturday in Palm Coast. “When our community shops locally, businesses thrive, jobs are created and it boosts our local economy,” said Palm Coast Mayor Milissa Holland. It also has the added benefit of generating money for amenities and projects for the community, because a portion of the sales tax collected returns back to Palm Coast to fund projects such as the new Palm Coast Community Center and Holland Park renovations, road repaving and street lights. “I want to encourage all of our residents to get out with their family and friends on Small Business Saturday this November 24th and enjoy the local shops and restaurants you love,” Mayor Holland said. “If every resident of Palm Coast were to spend $25 at a local business on Small Business Saturday it would infuse $1.462 million into our local economy!” Let Small Business Saturday encourage everyone to shop small all year long. For more information, visit the Palm Coast Business Assistance Center website at www.PalmCoastBAC.com.
