Shop local, support small businesses

Small Business Saturday is Nov. 28. While everyone knows about Black Friday – the day huge national retailers lure shoppers to buy the products they sell – Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28, is much more important, especially this year.

There is no doubt that consumers in Scripps Ranch enjoy the services and merchandise from their local businesses within an easy walk or drive. The convenience is one bright spot, and the hospitality, friendly service and quality are exceptionally high.

Local, independent, family-owned businesses are the heartbeat of the American economy. Whether enjoying the personal one-on-one service or selecting the one-of-a-kind products, shopping at local businesses is a preferred and enjoyable way to shop.

Scripps Ranch has a wonderful selection of independently-owned small businesses, including retailers, restaurants, health clubs and gyms, dance studios, realtors, lessons for students – and so many more. We encourage you to utilize locally-based services such as insurance, financial planners, dental care, medical care, plumbers, electricians, landscaping/yard care, home repair and fix-up services.

Supporting local businesses is not only a preferred, enjoyable, way to spend your hard-earned dollars, it supports local family business owners and the numerous Scripps Ranch employees depending on their jobs provided by these local business owners.

This year has been a difficult one for small businesses, but these resilient business owners have done an incredible job of solving their problems and finding ways to serve their customers and remain open.
