Small Business Saturday
– By #MillerSD
Have you heard of “Small Business Saturday”? It is an effort all across the United States to help people find the value in shopping local. This day is the counter offer to “Black Friday” when big box stores offer incredible deals the day after Thanksgiving. The “Small Business Saturday” movement honors local business owners and encourages local shopping.
This year, On Hand Development Corporation is sponsoring a “Small Business Saturday” event on November 27th with a kickoff breakfast at Turtle Creek Steakhouse from 9 a.m. to 11a.m. Those that come to the breakfast will receive “Shop Small” swag and get your name in a drawing for community cash. We will also be announcing the winners from the Miller Elementary school “Think BIG and shop small challenge.” On Hand Development visited the school on Thursday, November 18th and we challenged the students to write or draw what supporting local means to them.
And that’s not all! Miller C & C and On Hand Development Corporation are also rolling out a rewards program for loyal local shoppers call Sant’s Great Give Away! To enter, make a $20 (or more) purchase at a participating business. Two drawings will be held on Friday, December 10th (entries between November 27 and December 9) and Friday, December 17h (entries between December 10 and December 16). Each drawing will award two $150 and six $75 prizes in Community Cash. Make sure you fill out an entry form on the spot!
Wondering where you can sign up? Check out these Miller Civic and Commerce members: Miller Ace Hardware, American Family Insurance, Blevior Floral and Event Design, Blush Beauty, Heartstrings, The Clothes Garden, Kessler’s, Mainstreet Lunchbox, Miller Rexall Drug, Polly’s Shoe Store, Pump & Pak, and South Dakota Arms Company.
These are just a few ways we can say THANK YOU to loyal customers in our town. Please consider joining us on Small Business Saturday and enter the Santa’s Great Give Away and hopefully come home with some Community Cash for Christmas!

Think BIG and support small this season and every season!
