TUCSON — Local shops are reminding the public to support local business owners during the holiday season.
“I think it’s important to shop local. You know, support small businesses,” said shopper Michelle Kessler.
There are more than 160 locally owned businesses on historic Fourth avenue and several of them offered Small Business Saturday discounts. Sun Link also offered free rides throughout the day.
“We came from Quilters Market on the other side of town and we’re just looking at t-shirts and dresses, but the book store wonderful book store,” said Kenith Ijams.
Several people we spoke with said they make it a point to shop local to help keep money in our local economy.
“You want it to stay in Tucson. Anybody can have big box, but only Tucson can have their small businesses,” Ijams said.
