On Saturday, small businesses in St. Clairsville’s downtown area will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in celebration of Small Business Saturday. This event is designed to encourage people to shop locally and support these small businesses during the holiday season.
Kathy Wood, a vendor at the Melting Pot Marketplace, discussed the challenges that small businesses face when competing against larger retailers. She emphasized the importance of supporting small businesses, particularly in a small town like St. Clairsville where local shops make up a significant portion of the economy.
The Melting Pot Marketplace and other downtown shops are excited to participate in Small Business Saturday and showcase their products and services to local shoppers. As a new store this year, they are eager to connect with the community and demonstrate their commitment to providing unique and high-quality products to customers.
Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for the community to come together and show their support for local businesses in the area. By shopping locally, customers can help keep these businesses running while also getting some holiday shopping done at the same time.
