Shop Small this Holiday Season

Shop Small this Holiday Season

Today is Small Business Saturday and it is much more than a name and certainly much more than a marketing gimmick. In a commerce season increasingly by big box store madness on Black Friday and online retailers getting a slice of the action on Cyber Monday, it is important that we have a day to recognize small business. 

Small business has always been the backbone of American communities. These establishments serve the community, create jobs in the community, and pay taxes in the community. They are driven by your friends and your neighbors. Small business is the spitting image of the American dream; an avenue through which an individual can better their life and the life of their family and find freedom and success through hard work. 

As you’re planning your holiday shopping, make sure to keep these pillars of your community in mind. Before you click and shop, give your community a chance for gifts, or for groceries for a holiday meal. 

Freeburg has many great businesses that depend on your support. The Freeburg Chamber of Commerce implores you to visit our member establishments and keep your holiday funds following through the community, Every dollar you spend helps to keep your community strong. 

If you are a member of the Freeburg business community, please consider joining the Freeburg Chamber of Commerce. You can learn more about our membership benefits here, and become a member here.

It’s that time of year to start preparing for the 5th Annual Freeburg Fall Festival featuring a Chili Cookoff for the general public and a special Guns N Hoses Competition for Police and Fire Departments.

In addition to the “Guns N Hoses”Competition being added we changed locations to the Village Square Park a four years ago, added a large Free Kids Play Area creating a Family Friendly Festival, changed to the Old-Fashioned Beer Buckets, and last of all a Full Public Vote for ourPeople’s Choice competition winner. The 5th annual competition will continue to allow any and all local police and fire departments the opportunity to showcase their department while enjoying friendly competition in vying for the public’s vote to be awarded the prestigious and sought after “Guns N Hoses Cup” traveling trophy that comes with full bragging rights.
