This Saturday, Spokane celebrates an important part of the very fabric of the City of Choice: our local small businesses. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, which has officially become Small Business Saturday across the country since 2011, is a day to encourage ‘shopping small.'

This could be the most important Small Business Saturday in Spokane's history in the wake of last week's devastating storm. Along with local families, many small businesses were also impacted. Many business owners had to shut their doors for days as a result of power outages. Some had to make repairs to their buildings because of storm damage, incurring costly expenses on top of lost revenue from having to close. Let's give Spokane's local businesses a much-needed boost this Saturday as we get our region back to normal.

Greater Spokane Incorporated (GSI) has partnered with local businesses in advance of this year's event, and has been featuring one small business each day for 30 days leading up to Small Business Saturday. Local businesses taking part in Small Business Saturday include:

  • Brews Brothers Espresso
  • The Urban Canine
  • Porters Barbershop
  • Rockwood Bakery
  • Dodson's Jewelry
  • Spokane Power Tool
  • Perry Street Brewing
  • Sunny Buns Tanning Salon and Spa
  • Paint & Pints
  • Tot Shots
  • Allsport
  • Mom's Custom Tattoo
  • Frank's Diner
  • Das Stein Haus
  • Spa Paradiso
  • DeLeon Foods
  • Quality Inn Downtown (4th Ave.)
  • Zipperz
  • Cache Advance
  • Nectar Tasting Room

Businesses that would like to participate in the day by displaying a Small Business Saturday poster in their storefront can pick up free posters at any Numerica Credit Union location.

Now is as important as ever to show Spokane's small businesses our support. If you can, shop small this Saturday and support the unique and amazing services our local businesses offer.
