Did you know that when you shop at an independent business, more of your money gets reinvested right back into Uptown? "A study conducted by Andersonville Development Corporation in Chicago shows that for every $100 spent at a national chain only $43 stays in the community. If that same $100 is spent at locally owned independent stores $68 stays in the community."
There are truly too many locally owned businesses to list, but you have your favorites, we're sure. Spend some money there! Choose an independent retailer close to home and be a champion.
The Explore Uptown page has some "special finds." Check 'em out.
These businesses have reached out to UU with notice of their specials for Small Business Saturday. It is just a thumbnail version of what's available in our community. Show them, and others, that your love them buy shopping there!
