Here are three ways consumers can help support small businesses who are struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic.


Big-name businesses like Walmart and Target get all of the attention on Black Friday. The next day, a lesser known holiday, is Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting local businesses in our community.

It has been a tough year for small businesses. The pandemic has caused closures, shortened hours, capacity limits and layoffs. In this year of uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to show up and show out for the businesses that make Cincinnati special.

This year, Small Business Saturday falls on Nov. 28, and you can support these shops online or in person.

There are so many small businesses that are worthy of recognition, but here are a few ideas of places to visit for Small Business Saturday.
