Shop Small, Today and Every Day!

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Malta Animal Hospital is proud to support Small Business Saturday, a day designated to support locally run, small busShop Smallinesses in our community and score some great local deals.  Shop’til you drop at the box stores on Black Friday (or save yourself a big headache and DON’T), but make sure you support community on Saturday!

When is it?  The Saturday after Thanksgiving (the day AFTER Black Friday) each year.

Why should people Shop Small?  Money spent at small businesses in Malta, Ballston Spa, Saratoga, and Clifton Park stays in the area, supports the local community, and gives back to the people and organizations close to home instead of going to large corporations and their CEO’s and shareholders (usually spread out globally).  When you Shop Small, it MATTERS!  As more and more of our spending goes to giant companies such as Amazon, CVS, and Wal-mart that don’t tend to invest in their local employees or in our community, less goes to smaller merchants like us.  We’re happy American Express has partnered with small merchants to help them share their message: great products with better service and a commitment to the community!

Where is the event?  Visit your favorite locally owned and operated small businesses such as Malta Animal Hospital, Double M Western Store, Curtis Lumber, Allerdice Hardware, Malta Wine and Liquor, The Ripe Tomato, and the others such as Rock Fit. (Did you know…MANY of the seemingly small veterinary practices in our area are no longer locally owned- they’ve been gobbled up by large corporations?)  American Express has created a map… click here to see it and enter your address for very local results.

How do I participate?  Simply go out and grab some great deals from your favorite local store or other small business during the holiday shopping season, and every day!  Think of it as voting with your wallet, and support your home team!
