There is no doubt, Thanksgiving Weekend is THE busiest shopping weekend of the year. With the majority of money spent at chain stores, Small Business Saturday was created in efforts to drive sales to small businesses like our own. As a local and family owned retailer, we recognize the importance of shopping small and supporting other small businesses in the community. When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community strengthening the economic base. With so many reasons to #SHOPSMALL, we would love to hear your favorite reason for shopping at Peterson's on our Facebook page or on Google or Yelp!
