Small Business Saturday Nov. 27 is your day to support local merchants
As the nation is still struggling with the pandemic and supply chain issues affect larger retailers, there may not be a better time to support local businesses. They form the foundation of healthy communities since they provide not just the food, goods and services you need but also jobs and the paychecks that keep money moving locally. In many ways shopping, dining, and using local companies is helping yourself.

In Ballard it starts the day before on Black Friday with the return of Ballard Gives:
Each year, Ballard businesses join together and opt to give a portion of their proceeds from their Black Friday (November 26, 2021) sales to a charity of their choice. The program began in 2013 when a few local independent businesses wanted to put a more socially-conscious spin on the Black Friday shopping frenzy. Each year on Black Friday, shoppers in Ballard will find a lineup of generous businesses featured and know that some of their holiday shopping dollars will go toward supporting non-profits, Check out this year's participating shops and their charity. Get more information here.
A more socially conscious effort is planned for our community on Black Friday, as participating Ballard businesses are donating a portion of their proceeds to a local non-profit for Ballard Gives Back.
Twenty Ballard businesses are putting a generous spin on Black Friday by participating in the Ballard Gives Back program.
Ballard’s business owners are encouraging shoppers to skip the crowds and shop locally in Ballard for a good cause on November 26, 2021, Black Friday.
Many businesses are extending their donations throughout the entire holiday weekend. Here is a list of participating
businesses and the charity they are donating to when you shop at their location on Black Friday:

The program began in 2013 and continues to grow each year as more businesses flock to Ballard’s bustling shopping and dining district.
“In addition to the ‘giving’ portion of the post-Thanksgiving weekend, the Ballard merchant community is promoting a message to shop local and shop small. When small businesses thrive, communities thrive. When people support their local merchants and small businesses, more of their money stays in the community,” said Legh Burns, co-owner of re-souL.
