Local businesses were hit hard during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Some had to close temporarily and some saw reduced traffic. Other business owners had trouble with staffing and some saw problems with the supply chain and having products on hand. So basically it has just been rough on small businesses here in Ocean County and around the nation.

This Saturday, November 27th is Small Business Saturday. It's a reminder to remember our area's local businesses and to shop small and local this weekend. Take some time to visit your town's "mom & pop shops" stop in say hello see what they have going on and if inclined ... make a purchase or two. There are great shops with hidden treasures for you to discover.

Another "Shop Small" event is happening with the Southern Ocean Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is doing their "Shop Small Win Big Holiday Shopping Pass". The Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce CEO Lori Pepenella told us all about this year's event...

So wherever you go this Saturday, make sure to "SHOP SMALL" :)
