Welcome to the Greater Fort Wayne Inc. SHOP SMALLidays!
Small Business Saturday is just the beginning! We’re celebrating small businesses throughout the entire holiday season. In the coming weeks, we’ll showcase local small businesses and their holiday deals.
Local, independently owned small businesses create jobs, boost the economy, and invigorate their neighborhoods. In fact, according to a 2018 study by American Express, about 67 cents of every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in the local community.
Check back often as more deals come in and celebrate the GFW Inc. SHOP SMALLidays with us!
