After the Thanksgiving leftovers are packed away, the serious holiday shopping begins. A healthy stroll around the town centers of Massachusetts may be just the way to ease into the season, while supporting local businesses. Mall and big box store regulars are often surprised by the offerings available in their own community. Originally started by American Express, the idea has taken off and is being promoted by the Small Business Administration, the Minority Business Development Agency, and local merchants from across the state. A larger percent of the money spent at local businesses stays in the community.
Information about Small Business in Massachusetts is available on our website. We also have a Massachusetts Law About Shopping and Returns webpage to consult anytime during the year.
