Shop Locally in Wentzville and Lake Saint Louis on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24

Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in the Wentzville/Lake Saint Louis area.

“The Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce encourages all residents to shop local this holiday season!” said Tony Mathews, President/CEO. “When you shop local you are supporting local business owners who live and work in your community too. In addition the tax revenue created goes to fund your local roads, school and community services.”

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.

Consider shopping at small local businesses like these:

  • Imagination Pottery, Wentzville
  • Lake Saint Louis Jewelers, Lake Saint Louis
  • Lynn's Pets, Wentzville
  • Lake Saint Louis Garden Center, Lake Saint Louis
  • Hallmark Cards & Gifts, Wentzville

Everyone has locally owned businesses in their community, and shopping on Small Business Saturday is the perfect way to give back to the businesses you know and love in your community.
