WISCONSIN — Today is Small Business Saturday, a day devoted to supporting local businesses who support our communities.

If you have some holiday shopping to do, here are a few ways that you can support these local businesses while shopping safely and getting some great deals and surprises.

Although many of these stores will be open and ready for you to come in, keep in mind, most also offer online shopping or shopping by phone. Some also offer curbside pick-up, delivery, and if you shop today, you may get some nice discounts and surprises.

Some community organizations, like West Allis Downtown, are also offering shoppers an opportunity to be entered into a drawing when they shop in this area. Click here for more information on how to take advantage of this offer.

Whether it is buying items, a cup of coffee, or picking up dinner, shopping local is important to the community. Many of these businesses have a great reputation of providing quality service, superior products, and supporting their communities. It has been a tough year for many of these merchants, and they would surely appreciate your business.
