Small Business Saturday

Yesterday, Nick was proud to present a Proclamation to City Council, designating November 29 as Small Business Saturday. 

And, it’s just in time for our city-wide shopping extravaganza - Little Boxes! The two-day holiday season event is from November 28-29.  It’s a great way to shop local, win prizes, and support our neighborhood small businesses.

Small businesses are the backbone of Portland’s economy.  For every dollar spent at neighborhood small businesses, 70 cents stays in our community. 

As Council liaison to Venture Portland, Nick is proud to support our local small businesses and Little Boxes.  

Learn more about Little Boxes – and down their app – online.
