When you shop small you are actively contributing to the revitalization of your town.  $68 out of every $100 spent at a small independent mom & pop stays local vs. $43 when you spend it at a big box. 



Sauk Valley Shop Small is a grassroots alliance of area small, independently owned businesses and cultural groups seeking to increase community awareness of the benefits of shopping small and to promote each other year-round through the Shop Small Movement, and once a year through, American Express OPEN's Small Business Saturday®.


To increase Community awareness of Small Businesses and Cultural Groups within the Sauk Valley.


Small Businesses and Cultural Groups working together to cross-promote one another for the benefit of their Communities.
