Small Business Saturday
MainStreet Truth or Consequences and the Chamber of Commerce are collaborating together on Small Business Saturday, taking place on November 25th.
On Saturday November 25th, we are encouraging you to shop with small, local businesses first. Before you put that amazon order though, take a stroll through the Downtown area and see what treats and treasures you can find first.
During the holiday shopping season, it’s more important than ever to keep dollars in the local economy. When money is spent at locally-owned businesses, it has a greater impact than at businesses that are not locally owned because that money continues to recirculate in the community. We have fantastic stores and businesses with wonderful items from art to clothing to food to activities to treatments. Let's show some love to our local businesses!
PLUS spend $20 at a participating location and you could win a gift certificate from a local business!
AND if that wasn't enough, there are more ways you could win too!
- Take part in our scavenger hunt
- Enter a quiz about our local businesses

About Small Business Saturday
"Saturday, November 25, 2023 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. This year, we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Please join SBA and organizations across the country in supporting your local small businesses by shopping at a small business.
Founded by American Express in 2010 and officially cosponsored by SBA since 2011, Small Business Saturday has become an important part of small businesses’ busiest shopping season. Historically, reported projected spending among U.S. consumers who shopped at independent retailers and restaurants on Small Business Saturday reached an estimated $17.9 billion according to the 2022 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey commissioned by American Express."
