MEEKER I Gearing up for the holiday season, the Meeker Chamber of Commerce is promoting Small Business Saturday this weekend, and several local businesses will be taking part, offering specials, discounts, extended hours, etc.
Small Business Saturday is dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country and Rio Blanco County. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States.
Katelin Cook, executive director of the Meeker Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber has been encouraging local businesses to take part and make the most of Small Business Saturday to make this the biggest local shopping day of the year as well.
“Saturday will be the beginning of a week-long celebration in Meeker with the annual tree lighting and the Parade of Lights on Dec. 6,” she said.
“We are also encouraging Meeker-area resident to shop locally,” she said. “We will be distributing flyers around town that explain the importance of keeping dollars in our community.
“Most importantly, when you shop with local merchants, more of your money stays close to home, supporting your friends, neighbors and family members and supporting those things that make this community a great place to live.,” she said.
