On November 25, the entire country was able to celebrate Small Business Saturday. Chicago was not about to miss out. Both owners of small businesses and consumers were able to benefit from what Chicago had to offer, especially at the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce. In fact, it’s one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
Small Business Saturday has, over the years (since its inception in 2010), garnered a reputation for providing shoppers with better quality and more unique purchases.
Over in Bronzeville, there were around 20 local businesses that took the initiative to set up a spot where they sold their wares and which was especially useful for those selling pre-Christmas orders such as bakeries and decorative stores.
Meanwhile a new Andersonville store, Cowboys and Astronauts enjoyed great publicity as it had some great exposure. After getting into the holiday spirit on Thanksgiving, this was the perfect opportunity to take it to the next level.
