Small Business Saturday
(Deming) – Small Business Saturday is a nationally recognized day dedicated to supporting local businesses, and the Deming-Luna County Chamber of Commerce is hoping local shoppers will hear the message.
Founded in 2010 as a counterpart to Black Friday, Small Business Saturday gets shoppers out of the big box stores and into small, unique local businesses.
Deming Chamber Executive Director Mary Galbraith said the Chamber would like the community to SEE Deming – S-E-E – which stands for Shop – Eat – Enjoy.
She said it is about the community coming together to recognize small, local businesses.
Galbraith said one of the things people may not realize is that when money is spent in Deming, the majority of it stays in Deming.
And more money stays in the community if it is spent at a small, locally owned business.
New Mexico MainStreet officials have said that for every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $68 stays in the community. But when $100 is spent at a national chain – even in a small town – only $43 stays in that town.
Galbraith added that Small Business Saturday is all about supporting the businesses and business owners that make Deming unique.
