The participating businesses are all conveniently located in the Highland Plaza at 654 Highland Avenue in Fort Thomas.
Businesses included in Saturday's open market are: Monera Chic Boutique, Faded Finds, Diamonds and Dimples and Cobblestone Cafe. If you've not been yet, this is the perfect opportunity to shop local and support local business owners and entrepreneurs.
Each Small Business Saturday, the participating businesses also give back 10% of sales to a local charity. This month's event will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
Since February, the FTBA has held Small Business Saturday events to engage local residents throughout the year. In February Blue Marble Books was up 700% in sales compared to a normal Saturday. Midway Cafe Fort Thomas was up 50% in sales compared to a normal Saturday. A portion of the participating business proceeds were donated to Woodfill's Bigtop Festival.
In March Small Business Saturday participant Fort Thomas Central was up 50% and Colonel De Gourmet Herbs and Spices was up 857% at their retail store in Fort Thomas. A portion of the participating business proceeds were donated to Highlands High School Prom to Dawn.
Please be intentional about shopping local! See you there.
