Small Business Saturday: Go Loco, Shop Local

Small Business Saturday is an annual celebration that takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving to celebrate small businesses in local communities. We are kicking things off by launching Go Loco, Shop Local, a campaign designed to encourage San Diegans to Think Local First in the weeks leading up to Small Business Saturday, November 25.

When shopping local, dollars spent are invested back into the community helping neighborhoods thrive and stay vibrant. According to the Think Local First San Diego, an initiative started by the North San Diego Business Chamber, for every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, $45 – $68 goes back into the community.

North San Diego is home to thousands of small businesses, and with so many options to choose from, why leave town to shop, when all the amenities are just outside your doorstep? With the holidays just around the corner, we understand things can get a little “loco” during this time of year, and to help you navigate through this holiday season, we’ve curated a local guide for all your shopping, dining, and entertainment needs. So get into the holiday spirit and Go Loco, Shop Local!
