Small Biz Challenge

What is It

All year long we challenge you to shop small and shop local!

Choosing to shop small is choosing to invest in your community. For every dollar spent at a small business, an average of $0.68 stays in that business’s local neighborhood. Shopping small infuses money back into our local economies, promotes vibrant and diverse communities, and celebrates the important role of small businesses in the national economy.

We just wrapped up our 2023 Holiday Season challenge. Stay tuned for the first Small Biz Challenge of 2024!

2023 Holiday Season Small Biz ChALLENGE

Are you up for a challenge? A ‘Small Biz Challenge’

Our friends at Cedar Hill Apothecary came to us with a fabulous idea to keep the #ShopSmall push going through December. The idea is simple yet incredibly impactful for these local small businesses who are owned and operated by our friends and neighbors:

Now thru December 31, 2023, spend at least $5 per purchase with a local small business and earn a star on the punch card. 12 stars complete the card. There are no limits on the number of cards you can complete.

Bring completed cards to Cedar Hill Apothecary, 1108 South Main Street, Springfield, TN 37172. Cards must be turned in by or before December 31, 2023. Completed cards will be entered into a drawing for gift cards to local businesses! Winner announced January 5, 2024

What if your favorite small business in Springfield doesn’t have a star punch or the Small Biz Challenge cards?! It’s easy, have them reach out to Tori at Cedar Hill Apothecary or Ace with Real Springfield, TN.
