Small Businesses in Minot Take Advantage of Holiday

Posted: Updated:

We all know Black Friday and Cyber Monday can dominate small businesses, and folks in Minot were doing what they could to support local businesses earlier today. 

 

 

Downtown businesses along Main Street were taking advantage of the nationally recognized day. Small Businesses help create jobs, boost local economies and are the heartbeats of communities across the country.

 

 

"We don't have the backing of a corporation," says owner Kay Eaton, Gideon's Trumpet. "It is all on our shoulders. If we do it right, then we do it well. If we do it wrong, it really, really hurts the bottom line. We really need the support of the community, not only to tell us when we've done it right, but to also suggest perhaps you can do this, or perhaps you can get that.  But the main thing is to remember we are our own owners. We're our own bosses. We're our own front liners, and we're just trying to give back to the community."

 

 

According to a Redshift Research study, American consumers spend close to $5.5 billion during Small Business Saturday.
