My Buckhannon Insider Guide to Small Business Saturday

BUCKHANNON – Small Business Saturday is one day of the year to celebrate our hardworking neighbors and loved ones. Supporting a small business can be accomplished in a variety of capacities: a simple social media share, leaving a review on their website or purchasing a product or service allows someone’s dream to come true.

Small Business Saturday will be held Saturday, November 26, nationwide. Communities are encouraged to “shop local” or “shop small” during the entirety of the busy holiday shopping season.

Check out a few of Upshur County’s small businesses below, in support of our neighbors:
