HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - It’s Black Friday, but businesses here in the Central Business District are gearing up for Small Business Saturday, in fact, they’ve already started.
Stores along Main Street are open with deals running Friday and Saturday. This is all apart of the Henderson Small Business Saturday event from the Downtown Henderson Partnership.
For one local business, this is their first Small Business Saturday. Landy Lane Boutique off Main Street sells clothes and other items. Owner Angie Goodwin says community support is important.
“Without my customers and without support, there is no Landy Lane," explains Goodwin. “It’s just my two boys’ name and me working,” said Goodwin. "And it’s just, shopping small businesses is huge. That’s how we survive. If the customers don’t come we won’t survive.”
Downtown Henderson Partnership Board Member Kelsey Hargis also says community support for small businesses is important.
“These are our customers, these are our friends, this are our community, right?” said Hargis. “We just want to try to highlight them. When you give back to a small business, they’re putting ads in the community paper, they’re supporting the local football team. Again, these are just our friends and neighbors, and we wanna show them some love.”
Although businesses in Henderson have gotten a head start, Small Business Saturday is on November 30.
