Yetta Oddin, left, and Shelby Williams are excited about all the great gift ideas and sales Northtown Drug has to offer shoppers on Shop Small Saturday, coming up on Saturday, Nov. 28. Northtown Drug offers a great variety of wines and other beverages that are perfect gifts for the hard-to-buy-for on your shopping list. Check out the other Shelby businesses who are participating in Shop Small Saturday on page 7 of this week’s issue.

Long lines, rude people, pushing and shoving to grab that must-have Christmas item this year, tired and overworked cashiers… Black Friday, who needs it when there is Shop Small Saturday? Shop Small Saturday is still a go in downtown Shelby and the merchants are ready and happy to assist you with all of your holiday shopping needs.

Unique gift ideas are everywhere as local businesses have stocked their shelves with new and additional stock in order to better serve their community’s gift-giving needs. Shopping at home not only offers convenience and a more relaxed atmosphere, but supports the local businesses that support our community all year long.

Northtown Drug, Taylor’s True Value, Shelby Paint and Hardware, Shelby Floral and Gift, Shelby Liquor Store, Prairie Peddler, Larsons Clothing and Spa30 are prepared and excited to offer shoppers a great experience and fantastic sales on Saturday, Nov. 28. All will be open during their usual Saturday business hours and offering special holiday deals and steals you won’t want to miss! 

In addition to great sales, the Toole County Forward coins will also be circulating!

“With the holidays upon us, the Toole County Forward Committee felt it critical to support our local business community by re-circulating Toole County Forward Coins as part of Shop Small Saturday,” said Toole County Forward committee member, Lorette Carter. “Participating merchants will have coins that will be given away throughout the day.”

If anyone needed any more incentive to shop local the Toole County Forward committee has it! If you are the 10th customer in any participating business you will instantly win a $20 Toole County Forward coin that can be spent at any participating business. The merchants participating will have a poster in their window.

“This year, more than ever, we want to encourage our community members to think local and support our local merchants,” concluded Carter.
