Small Business Saturday is just two weeks away and the Bossier Chamber of Commerce is celebrating by partnering with local banks Citizens National Bank, Community Bank of Louisiana, Gibsland Bank and Red River Bank to reward people for shopping small on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 30, by ambushing shoppers and paying for a portion of their purchase.
With the help of these banks, the Chamber has $700 to go towards rewarding locals for supporting our small businesses throughout Bossier Parish.
“Small business is the backbone of our economy,” Lisa Johnson, President and CEO of the Bossier Chamber, said. “It is very important to shop small, shop local and support these businesses!”
In addition to paying for a portion of the purchases of small business shoppers, the Chamber will also be passing out Shop Small bags and visiting with Small Businesses that help our economy grow.
To follow the action, pay attention to the Bossier Chamber’s social media over the next few weeks as they touch base with the local banks on why they want to give back, as well as on Shop Small Saturday to see surprised shoppers.
