Once upon a time a US Dollar circulated seven times around a neighborhood before leaving; now it takes only minutes. Travel to other retail areas and online shopping are part of the equation but we CAN still choose where we spend a portion of our money. #SHOPSMALLYO – occurs once a year in conjunction with Small Business Saturday (Nov 25th, 2017), and encourages the community to support local businesses who need your love.
