Recognizing the importance of supporting small, independently-owned businesses in our community, Franklin Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its designation as a Neighborhood Champion in support of Small Business Saturday for the seventh consecutive year. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide. Celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the day has given small businesses across the country a huge boost.

Franklin shoppers are encouraged to take part in the Small Business Saturday Start Here Open House on November 30th.  This seventh annual event takes place from 10:00 to 2:00 at the Franklin Chamber of Commerce office at 120 E Jefferson Street.  Shoppers who visit the Chamber to support small businesses will receive Shop Small giveaways, incentives, coupons, information on participating businesses, and refreshments to start the day.

Rosie Chambers, executive director of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce adds, “The Chamber has hosted this open house for seven years and it has become a family tradition for many in our community. The Chamber hopes to encourage shoppers to support small, locally owned shops and restaurants not only on the Saturday after Thanksgiving but all year long”.
