Small Business Saturday - Fort Thomas, Kentucky


Small businesses do a lot to help our community, and, on Nov. 28, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we’ll have an opportunity to thank them.

That’s because Nov. 28 is Small Business Saturday, the Saturday after Black Friday.

Here's what some Fort Thomas small business owners and economic leaders are saying:

Tami Root, Owner, Studio Root Skin Care:
“It’s important to support local businesses because it makes for a stronger community.  Closed store fronts aren’t a good look, they can’t bring in city and county revenue, and that isn’t good for schools or property values.  When local business thrives, they have more to donate to the community.  It’s a win/win.”

Small Business Saturday offer: I am at Fort Thomas Central from 11-2 p.m. on Saturday doing brow wows.  I have multiple gift packages available:
- $25 Package: Large Body Lotion, Large Shower Creme, Nail Brush, Nail Buffing Block, $15 Gift Card.
- $50 package:  Vitamin Wash, Rosewater toner, Small Body Lotion, Small Shower Creme, $30 Gift Card
- $100 package:  Small Vitamin Wash, Primer, Glycoic Retexturinzing Serum, Calming Serum, $60 Gift Card.
- Buy 5 gift cards, get 1 free.

Michael Arnzen, Co-Owner, The Olde Fort Pub:

"Supporting local business inspires a sense of inclusion in both the business and the community that you just don't get with the big box stores.  It makes you feel special to say "that's my coffee shop" or "that's my bar" or "that's my deli" and know that it's one of a kind." 

Jennifer Lynn, Owner, Fit Philosophie:
"As a business owner and as a working  mother, my life is made possible by the kind, generous, supportive and awesome clients whose come to my business, tell others about my business and who are now my dear friends! During the holidays, the best gift I can receive is continued support and referrals.

Small Business Saturday Offer: Fit Philosophie is holding a shop small special event on  Saturday, December 5 from 830 -1130 a.m.

We will have complementary coffee and donuts provided by Urbana Cafe while also offering one-day only discounted passes and gift certificates. Local business, Fort Thomas Central will also be at the studio with lots of stocking stuffers and small gifts for sale. We would love to see you!

Barb Thomas, Owner, Fort Thomas Central:
"Shopping local is important because you are supporting local businesses that help grow the economic base of Fort Thomas.  The dollars you spend have a domino effect. In many ways, that money will eventually find its way back to you.

Contributions from shopping local keeps Fort Thomas safe, beautiful and stabilizes our home values. 

You don't have to shop local every time to make an impact. Getting in the mindset of shopping and doing business locally first is all it takes to start improving Fort Thomas. Without local support, small businesses can not survive.  Thank you Fort Thomas for your local support!"

Small Business Saturday Offer: Fort Thomas Central invites you to shop with us on SBS and enjoy 10% off your entire purchase.  Tami Root with Studio Root will be on-site giving "brow-wows" and lip touch ups.
