Small Business Saturday-shop local


Shopping locally is something that many people are opting to do, over the hustle and bustle at big box stores this year. 

Shopping local, small businesses is convenient, helps reduce your carbon footprint, supports local businesses, invests in your community, helps create demand for local jobs, great deals can be found and you are likely to find quality products. 

Downtown Bellefontaine Development Director, Micky Groves talks about the importance of shopping downtown this holiday season.


The Logan County Chamber of Commerce with the Logan County Visitor’s Bureau and the Downtown Business Partnership will be handing out bags on Saturday.  These bags are filled with promotional items from the downtown businesses.  Bags can be picked up at any downtown retail location.

Groves says downtown Bellefontaine is unique because of the number of local businesses we have in our downtown.  You wrap around two blocks and find a variety of local shops.
