Leesville businesses will be taking part in Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26 through extended business hours and special promotions.
According to Cindy Jean, promotions chair of the City of Leesville Main Street Board, local businesses will have longer business hours on Nov. 26 as well as throughout the month of December. Local businesses will also hold special promotions to attract shoppers to their businesses. Jean said that the emphasis on Small Business Saturday will increase the downtown's exposure to Vernon Parish residents.
"It will have a bigger impact because there will be more to do in the historic downtown area, so more people are inclined to stop in historic downtown Leesville," Jean said.
Small Business Saturday is a national event which promotes support of local businesses instead of shopping at national retail stores.
