Supporting small businesses


What is Shop Small?

Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting the thousands of small businesses who are the backbone of our community and economy. The movement brings together support from the business community, governments and consumers encouraging them to support small businesses all year-round.

Make a difference

Did you know that every time you take a yoga class at your neighborhood spot or buy a gift from the local artist down the street, you're shopping small and making a difference?

In fact, for EVERY DOLLAR spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in our local community. We all have favorite small businesses we can't imagine living without. However, fewer small businesses are opening and staying open. To be successful requires an abundance of grit, passion and determination; and today our small businesses need your support more than ever!

So when you Shop Small on “Small Business Saturday” (the Saturday after Black Friday) – and all year long – YOU can help create a big impact! Please kokua and SHOP LOCAL, BUY LOCAL.
