Sheldon, Iowa — Retailers are looking forward to this “Black Friday” — the day many can say they are now operating “in the black.” Online retailers have come to expect big sales on “Cyber Monday”, the Monday after Thanksgiving. A few years ago, the concept of “Small Business Saturday” started to take hold.
The Sheldon Chamber’s Allison Cooke says that it’s something that Sheldon businesses are embracing.
She says some Sheldon retailers are offering a special promotion as well.
She says that the rules about the discount and how it’s handled are up to the individual merchants.
Sheldon businesses remind you that when you shop locally, your dollars stay local and help fund things at home, rather than funding things in another community.
