- Holiday spending in full swing..there was grey Thursday, Black Friday...and now Small Business Saturday.
In Boulder Junction business owners know they need their friends and neighbors to keep the tight knit economy rolling.
Theresa Smith is the Executive Director of the Boulder Junction Chamber of commerce, "Without them, we would not have this beautiful downtown area here in Boulder Junction. That's what keeps us all thriving and living and working in the Northwoods. So it's an important thing and I know that the business owners really appreciate all of the folks that they see through their door."
One business on main street just opened its doors in October and they know they can provide a one-of-a-kind service you won't find in a big box store.
Janny Thomas of the Boulder Junction Trading Company says, "Well here we try to help everybody personalize things and know people's names so that they want to come back. We can specialize in gifts."
Another bonus of the small business shopping experience is unique items often made right here in the Northwoods.
