Did you know that over 80% of Exeter businesses are small businesses? Small Business Saturday is a way to show support for our local small businesses during the holiday season. Go out and ‘shop small’ Exeter!

Last year, Small Business Saturday celebrated its eighth year, and an estimated 108 million consumers reported shopping or dining at local independently-owned businesses, according to the 2017 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, released by the National Federation of Independent Business and American Express. That’s down from last year’s 112 million shoppers, which was a 13% increase from 2015.
This is bad news for Exeter and we’re hoping to help turn it around. Every dollar you spend locally helps our community. So come on, spread the word and SHOP LOCAL.
