Small Business Saturday is an event that encourages people to shop locally and support small businesses, especially during the Christmas season. This event will be held on Saturday in St. Clairsville’s downtown shops from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Kathy Wood, a vendor at the Melting Pot Marketplace, spoke about the challenges faced by small businesses when competing with larger retailers. She emphasized the importance of supporting small businesses, particularly in a small town like St. Clairsville where they play a crucial role in the community’s economy and livelihood.
The Melting Pot Marketplace and other downtown shops are excited to participate in this event and showcase their products to local shoppers. As a new store this year, they are looking forward to an eventful weekend with the support of the community and to get some holiday shopping done while keeping small businesses running. It’s an opportunity for the community to come together and show their support for small businesses in the area that contribute so much to their well-being and prosperity.
