Shop Small – and Win! In Lower Manhattan

Small Business Saturday is coming up this Saturday (November 24th). It's an initiative (since 2010) to remind us all how vital small businesses are to our community:

"You're shopping small and fueling the Shop Small Movement every time you pick up a latte at the corner coffee shop, buy a new bag at the neighborhood boutique, or catch a show at the town theater. You're supporting the small businesses that make your community vibrant and unique."
