In Ashland, Small Business Saturday brought out a large crowd.
Small Business Saturday began 5 years ago as a promotion by American Express, now it’s recognized across the country as a day to shop locally.
Jennifer Streit — who opened Prize in Ashland — says it means a lot to her as a small business owner, “It’s so important to me that small businesses are still thriving, because that’s what make a community, and that’s what makes every town special.”
Streit says she expects foot traffic to increase as the countdown to Christmas begins.
