Join us November 26th as our community celebrates Small Business Saturday and Shop In The Dotte.

You might ask "What is Small Business Saturday and What does it mean to Shop Small?" Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving first initiated by American Express in 2010, in an effort to promote local, small businesses and to drive holiday shoppers to explore the locally-owned shops of their communities.

For Wyandotte Businesses, Small Business Saturday aligns perfectly with their Local First campaign, an initiative that seeks to increase awareness of the cost associated with taking dollars away from the local economy.

"Wyandotte is the quintessential small business city," says Dan Cataldo, publisher of the Shop & Dine In The Dotte Magazine - "This is a great opportunity to discover and enjoy shopping any one of your local small businesses. Local isn’t just a place on a map. It’s people: your neighbors and their families and businesses. Our community thrives when neighbors buy from locally-owned businesses because those businesses invest back in their neighbors as customers and employees. Wyandotte is an active city with a vibrant residential and commercial community. We have an eclectic variety of retailers and eateries. Our retail shops offer everything from fashion clothing, gifts and books, crafting, and organic groceries. And if shopping makes you hungry, there is plenty to choose from with fine dining, Italian, pizza, a burger and beer, Sushi or Thai. Family and friends can take the entire day exploring Wyandotte."

Many Wyandotte businesses will be participating in Small Business Saturday by offering special discounts and various in-store activities. To help inform shoppers of what their local business community has to offer, Shop & Dine In The Dotte Magazine will be providing three Welcome Stations.

Start your day at any one of these Welcome Stations to get everything you need to Shop Small in Wyandotte. Free swag, Downtown Dollars to spend like cash (limited quantity available so arrive early). Shop In The Dotte Cupcakes, Shop & Dine Magazines filled with offers and where to get your deals. These stations will be set up from 9am to 5pm at:

  • Discount Drinks Etc. - 2811 Fort Street, Wyandotte
  • Hoods Hardware - 1844 Ford Ave. (Northline), Wyandotte
  • The Mitten Pub - 132 Sycamore Street, Downtown Wyandotte

"Communities that support their local businesses are richer, happier and more well-rounded," says Cataldo. "Your choice does make a difference. The merchants in Wyandotte are working hard to invite everyone to Shop & Dine In The Dotte on Saturday, November 26th."
