The Apple Valley Chamber, the Convention & Visitors Bureau and the City of Apple Valley are excited to join forces to promote SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY. House Speaker Ed Kearney and Apple Valley Mayor Clint Hooppaw met this week to brainstorm ideas and get things done. Together will we use heavy social media and newspaper ads and editorials to promote. Held the day after Black Friday and 2 days before Cyber ââMonday, this is the perfect time to do your holiday shopping while supporting the locals.
When you shop small, you’re not just supporting neighborhood favorites, you’re investing in a community.
