SACRAMENTO - With the majority of Small Business Saturday attention going to retail, we wanted to provide some other ways you can contribute to local business and support the local economy.
Following are 10 types of small businesses that would make excellent shopping destinations and surely appreciate your business this Small Business Saturday:
1. Contractors - Painters, plumbers, electricians, builders, handymen, landscapers and the like are all local company types that could use a boost this holiday season. Whether you finally take care of those house tasks, or you get someone a truly outside- the-box gift in the form of a painted room or a fixed leaky faucet, spending with contractors on Saturday is a great option.
2. Artists/Art Galleries - Small or large, the gift of paintings, sculptures, or decorations are always appreciated at the holidays.
