Studies show that most of the money spent in a locally owned small business remains in that community’s local economy. This money creates a domino effect that pushes additional local sales, community investment, and charitable giving. When you spend a dollar with a local establishment, you are contributing to the growth and economic resilience of Menomonie.

On Saturday, Nov. 25, downtown Menomonie will once again participate in Small Business Saturday. Whether you are seeking a special gift for a family member or looking for a talented service provider, locally owned businesses have something to offer for everyone in the community.

Throughout the day, businesses will provide specials and discounts to promote the importance of this day. As you “shop small” consider “dining small” at a number of unique locally owned eating and drinking establishments.
