Residents Urged To Shop Locally in Raytown

cityofraytownMany Raytown residents will be looking to snag bargains on Black Friday but the City of Raytown wants to encourage our citizens to be part of the Black Friday weekend madness, while supporting our local economy.

Mayor David Bower is encouraging residents to participate in Small Business Saturday on November 30, by visiting locally-owned retailers. In 2010, American Express launched the campaign to thrust a day between the big after-Thanksgiving sales and the Cyber Monday business to pump up sales toward small companies. Last year, more than 100 million shoppers turned out for the local sales.

“Small Business Saturday allows our residents a chance to support their city by shopping the smaller shops in Raytown.” Bower said. “These businesses are run by local entrepreneurs, friends, families and acquaintances. They should be supported as they keep and spend the dollars that will be used right here in our neighborhoods.”

Small businesses employ half of the employees in the private sector in the United States.
