Small business Saturday

With the holidays fast approaching, I would like to make the residents of Hastings aware of Small Business Saturday.

Everyone has heard of Black Friday associated with big box stores and the sales that kick off the Christmas shopping season.

What people don’t know as much about is Small Business Saturday that occurs on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Small businesses are the foundation of this country. In a time of economic turmoil, support of small business is essential for small businesses to survive.

Hastings is chock full of wonderful, unique small businesses with a wide array of shopping opportunities.

Consider shopping locally this year instead of driving to Grand Island or Lincoln.

Hastings needs your support. Small businesses need your support. And you will be most pleasantly surprised at what Hastings has to offer.
