Sandwiched in between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Small Business Saturday, a national campaign promoting shopping at locally-owned shops and stores during the holidays.
Chamber President Wende Ragonis says supporting a shop-local mentality has always been an emphasis of the Chamber, but that mindset carries much more importance this year.
Ragonis says it is not just the local economy that benefits from consumers choosing to shop small.
Several businesses in downtown Brenham have special promotions planned for this weekend. To see what stores have specials or activities, visit the Black Friday Shopping in Downtown Brenham event page on Facebook. Shoppers can also go online to http://chamber.brenhamtexas.com/hotdeals.
