Small Business Saturday was a huge success this past fall! Store owners were engaged in the promotions and customers were buzzing like busy bees in Downtown Franklin! Franklin Southampton Economic Development spent a couple hours Downtown, offering fresh hot coffee and donuts to shoppers, along with free Shop Small goodies.
Store owners shared that it was a great day and it really encouraged people to get out and shop locally. We do not want this to happen only in November though. Remember to always think about your local shops first, when buying a birthday present, adding to your collection of jewelry, in need of that perfect hairdo or even getting your oil changed. Shop local in Downtown Franklin!
