Saturday, November 29, is a day to support local entrepreneurs by shopping locally, keeping shoppers money in the area during Small Business Saturday.

In downtown Temple, local leaders encouraged those in the area to get out and support local stores.

The rainy day didn't keep shoppers away from Downtown Georgetown on Small Business Saturday.

Every 67 cents of each dollar spent at a small business stays in their local community on the Saturday.

Outside of Temple other communities in China Spring, Hewitt, and Killeen participated.

And shopkeepers such as Parr get credit from the Small Business Administration for boosting the USA economy.

The weather didn't keep shoppers out of the stores on Saturday. "Every time you think to shop for someone or buying for yourself, your first thought should be to shop local". "Everything that we purchase stays local".

Georgetown has many more events planned with small businesses throughout the holiday season.

The most popular independent retailers visited a year ago included restaurants, bars and pubs (41 percent), clothing and accessories stores (24 percent), food stores (23 percent) and coffee shops (22 percent).

Hazel Hill been open since 2005, bumping up their original staff of just two people to sixteen with the support of the local community.

Others say they have seen more locally owned businesses pop-up in South Bend.

"I think it's been growing ever since I came here", Russo said.

Shopping small also gives people the chance to explore old and new business in downtown Springfield.
