Have you been seeing those cute commercials on TV promoting Small Business Saturday?  One features Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.  Another features Bell with her "Frozen" sister Idina Menzel.  The video clips are encouraging us to patronize our local businesses on "Small Business Saturday." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNfJZbOD_gQ

Actually the goal is to remind us that our local "Mom and Pop" shops are important parts of our community.  With the popularity of online shopping and the convenience of big box stores, we need to keep spending at the small places if we want them to remain open.

If you want to know which Ocean and Monmouth County businesses are participating in Small Business Saturday, you can do a search at this website:  https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/shop-small/

Happy Shopping!
