Most local businesses have online stores, and many restaurants offer gift cards that can be purchased online, so shoppers can make the most of Small Business Saturday without ever leaving their house, if desired.
But for those who do want to venture out, the “OPEN Downtown” page on downtowndayton.org is a great tool to see all of downtown Dayton’s open businesses, their hours and how to shop at each online.
“The important thing is, no matter how you choose to do your shopping, not only on Small Business Saturday, but throughout the holiday season, think of our locally owned small businesses,” Gudorf said.
