Suttons Bay Saturday
Celebrate Suttons Bay!!! Support your local businesses AND local schools at the same time by shopping local during Suttons Bay Saturday on April 21st. For the second year, Suttons Bay Chamber of Commerce is designating a special shopping day as SUTTONS BAY SATURDAY. On April 21st area businesses will donate a portion of their proceeds back to the department of your choice at Suttons Bay schools. This is a great opportunity for people to get out and see the new spring merchandise that fills the stores or enjoy a nice meal at a local establishment…while supporting your local businesses and local schools at the same time. A strong school system is vital to the long term health of our entire community, and they need our support now more than ever.
Shopping local is fun, but there is more to it than that. There is a tremendous multiplier effect in choosing to shop local. Each dollar spent with a local business returns 3x more money to our local economy than that spent at a chain store. Spending your hard-earned money locally means area businesses can employ your family and friends. Shopping local allows these businesses to employ supporting services from area trades, accountants, insurance providers, and so on. Not to mention, shopping local allows these businesses to give back to local causes.
