Small Business Saturday celebrated in Rapid City

Posted:

While shoppers Friday were steered toward larger chains for Black Friday, Saturday was dedicated to all things local.

Mayor Sam Kooiker named November 30, 'Small Business Saturday,' with businesses in downtown Rapid City offering deals and promotions. 

Small Business Saturday is something celebrated across the nation as part of an effort to support local places. 

One Rapid City shopper says she doesn't support shopping at big chains, and plans on doing some Christmas shopping Saturday at local places. "I want to shop locally because I want the money to stay here," said Eris Tanner. "We need to support our local businesses so we will continue to have local businesses." 

Local employee Sarah Seljeskog, of Bella Boutique, says local places need to support each other. "These are the people that we support as well, our education, our restaurants, the other shops throughout town and it's important that we all help each other out," said Seljeskog.

Dan Seftner, Destination Rapid City president, says 90% or nearly 90% of our community works for a local business.
