North Iowa Small Businesses Want Your Biz this Saturday

North Iowa’s small town businesses would like your shopping support this holiday weekend, especially during Small Business Saturday.

Charles City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Mark Wicks says you may think small businesses don’t have everything you’re looking for, but don’t let that stop you from giving them a try.

New Hampton Mayor Bobby Schwickerath says regular shopping at local, small businesses could also help change the available selection.

Schwickerath says customers are welcome to shop on “Plaid Friday,” New Hampton’s spin on the traditional Black Friday.

Wicks adds that by shopping locally, you’ll also save money at the pump.

Those gas figures are for round trips.

Wicks adds that the theme for this year’s Small Business Saturday is “Shop Small: Big Surprises,” meaning you can find hidden gems when you take a closer look at shopping locally.
