Small Business Saturday encourages supporting local
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Shop small is a nationwide movement that celebrates small businesses every day and helps communities thrive and stay vibrant.
It’s also known as Small Business Saturday.
A day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country.
The owners of a Lexington fitness studio, CSS Wellness, are not originally from Lexington but co-owner Tarra Leggett said something that drew them to the area is the community’s support for small businesses.
“It’s important to support small businesses because when you spend your money with businesses that are in your community, that money stays in your community and it helps the economy grow,” Leggett said.
CSS Wellness started in the basement of their home and continued to grow which lead them to their spot on Richmond Road.
Leggett says seeing small businesses succeed encourages others to go after their dreams and goals.
