Ferndale, Holly, Berkley, Birmingham, Royal Oak and Rochester, MI – The Saturday after Thanksgiving is a day where consumers are urged to think about their locally owned businesses and “shop small” for their holiday gifts. And in Oakland County the movement is fueled by a county-wide contest where shoppers can send in their receipts from any local restaurant or retail establishment for a chance to win $1,000. The contest normally is just on Small Saturday, but this year they’ve extended it for an entire week. For details of the contest CLICK HERE.
Earlier this week Oakland County Times featured six communities and their Shop Small plans. Click on the pictures below to learn more about what’s going on in each city:
