Shop Small, Shop Local on Small Business Saturday & All Week Long

By Stacey Goddard

Holiday shopping is top of mind for many people this year. Coupled with the excitement of spending time with family and friends, giving gifts can bring a lot of joy and warm feelings to gatherings.

I enjoy gift giving and shopping. If you’ve read my previous blog posts, then you know that my favorite shopping event of the year will be here soon: Small Business Saturday.

American Express launched Small Business Saturday in 2010, during the recession, to spotlight and support the locally owned and operated shops that are the backbones of our communities.

Now, with inflation affecting all of us, it can be important to watch how we spend our dollars and approach holiday shopping wisely. One way you can do this is by choosing to spend locally to support your community after you’ve shopped—or avoided—Black Friday sales.

Your Neighborhood Champion

Spokane County Library District is the Neighborhood Champion for four communities this year. We’re helping you and other community members discover fantastic local stores in each of these towns:

This year, we’ve also extended our Small Business Saturday program to a weeklong event: November 26 to December 3.

This weeklong event gives you more opportunities to explore and shop at local businesses. Check out our list of participating businesses below along with a link for each community’s Google map of locations.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the small businesses of these four communities before, you’ll find that holiday shopping is a great way to explore each town’s sights and experience the small-town feel each offers.

Plus, you never know what you may find—perhaps that perfect gift—at vibrant, local shops!

Shop Small Prize Drawing

When you shop during the event, you can also enter a prize drawing for a chance to win a gift card to a local participating business of your choice.

Step 1: Pick up a passport at a participating library. They are available now.

Step 2: Shop at participating businesses to get stickers for your passport during the weeklong event.

Step 3: Turn in your passport to a participating library by 6pm on December 3 to be entered into a drawing to win a gift card!

It’s that easy!

The prizes for the drawing have been generously provided by the Friends of the Argonne, Cheney, Deer Park, and Medical Lake Libraries.

Stacey Goddard loves being able to work with small business owners and people looking to change careers as part of her job as a Public Services Manager for Spokane County Library District. She’s also a fan of helping folks increase their financial literacy, especially after her own ill-advised spending decisions in her 20s and 30s! Outside of work, Stacey enjoys buying cookbooks to browse and probably never use, binge-watching fashion competition shows, and planning her next vacation to the Oregon Coast.
