Shop Small Wisconsin, support local this holiday season
22 Nov 2023
Wisconsin’s unique small businesses help make our communities more vibrant and our state more prosperous. This holiday season, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is encouraging everyone to visit and shop at locally owned businesses.
Governor Tony Evers has declared Nov. 25 through Dec. 31 as a time to “Shop Small Wisconsin.”
“Small businesses contribute to our communities’ success by providing jobs, spending money locally and helping draw residents and visitors to our downtowns to gather, work and celebrate,” said WEDC Deputy Secretary Sam Rikkers, who will be visiting businesses in communities across the state. “The holiday season is an especially important time for us all to support local businesses as it’s the time of year when many businesses make the bulk of their revenue.”
