Small Business Saturday - there are many deserving businesses located within and near Palmetto Bay working for your business

Saturday November 24 is not just your usual Saturday. There is more going on than the UM v PITT, UF v FSU, Marshall v FIU, Charlotte v FAU games (though I will be attending and watching) - 

Note that the UCF v USF is/was Friday, November 23, 4:15 PM

Saturday, November 24, is SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!

Small Business Saturday falls annually on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.” It is a day to “celebrate and support the small, independently owned businesses that help boost local economies across the country.

Small Business Saturday was created in 2010 in response to small-business owners’ most pressing need — more customers — in the face of competition from the big-box and online retailers.

We are fortunate to have the Palmetto Bay Business Association - CLICK HERE to download and view a 30 page .PDF file listing business members of the Palmetto Bay Business Association. You might be surprised to find a business that you need right in your backyard.

Besides the listed PBBA Members, Palmetto Bay is home to a large variety of businesses including bicycle shops, florists, flooring & design, clothing stores, and many local jewelers.

And, of course, you can take a break at or dine locally post shopping at any of the numerous restaurants from $ to $$$$ that we are fortunate to have located here in Palmetto Bay. (Many of these establishments offer gift cards that make great holiday personal or business appreciation gifts).

As Mayor, I encourage everyone to make every effort to patronize Palmetto Bay’s small & independent businesses on Nov. 26. Heck, please make every day a "small business Saturday".
