There are more reasons than ever to support Dayton’s small businesses.

Nov. 27 is the 12th Annual Small Business Saturday, focused on supporting the diverse range of local businesses that help create jobs, boost the economy and enhance neighborhoods in small towns and big cities throughout the country.

Most local businesses have online stores, and many restaurants offer gift cards that can be purchased online, so shoppers can make the most of Small Business Saturday without ever leaving their house, if desired.

But for those who do want to venture out, the Downtown Dayton Partnership has a comprehensive page dedicated to finding all of downtown’s local eateries and retail shops. Visit to see more.

“The important thing is, no matter how you choose to do your shopping, not only on Small Business Saturday, but throughout the holiday season, think of our locally owned small businesses,” Gudorf said.

Here are some of the Dayton local businesses to keep in mind while shopping local this weekend.
