The way people shop has changed in the past two decades, but one need remains the same: excellent customer service. Who better to provide great service and understand the local shopper than your neighbor? Keeping those dollars in our community has great impact on the Boulder City economy. Mayor Kiernan McManus, City leaders and staff of Boulder City are excited to invite shoppers to shop here on November 30, 2019: Small Business Saturday. (See attached proclamation.)
In its 10th year, Small Business Saturday was started by American Express in the depths of a recession to help rally communities to support local businesses. The selected day is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving (this year the event falls on November 30) and is a nationally recognized day to support, promote and enjoy local businesses. “With over 85% of Boulder City’s business core considered to be ‘small businesses,’ Boulder City is the poster child for shopping local, enjoying neighbors, finding a smile behind the register, and ending the day with a wonderful feeling of accomplishment from finding treasures while supporting the local economy,” said Jill Lagan, CEO of the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce. “This great Nation’s economic base is reliant on the small business owner and we each do our part to build on that base by remembering to shop small businesses too.”
Boulder City small businesses are not only a great place to find perfect gifts, treasures, antiques, trusted services, and great food, but supporting local businesses also creates jobs and helps ensure our local economy stays strong and vibrant. “We are pleased with the shop local efforts of our community, as there was a 9% increase in local spending following the opening of Interstate 11 last year,” said Raffi Festekjian, the City’s Economic Development Coordinator. “Boulder City residents have proven they can provide a positive economic impact on the local economy. We look forward to their continued contribution at this year’s Small Business Saturday.”
