Support local businesses by participating in Small Business Saturday

By Jeff Allen

Be sure to set aside some of your Black Friday shopping dollars for Small Business Saturday. This effort organized by American Express, Facebook and others is a great way to get folks to shop at their local small businesses. The big box stores will get plenty of action on Black Friday so consider reserving some of your holiday budget for a locally owned and operated small business. As an added bonus, if you go to the Small Business Saturday Facebook page , register your American Express card and spend $25 at a participating local small business, AMEX will give you a $25 credit on your next statement. That's free money just for spending it locally.  Even if you don't have an American Express card, join the effort and make Saturday a banner day for our hard working locally owned and operated retailers. There are 166 Genesee County small businesses currently registered on the site so there are plenty to choose from.  Shop local, Save local, $25 free credit.  Win, Win, Win.

A great local shopping experience!

I *was* in the market for a new vacuum cleaner after borrowing my friend's Dyson dc17 animal. After doing plenty of research online I decided that that was the vacuum for me-I have a large, shedding black lab.

I started my search online to get an idea of what the vacuums cost. Then I searched for vacuum shops in Batavia. I was shocked that there was a locally owned, independant vacuum shop right in Batavia!

I gave the Corner Vacuum Shop a visit this morning and came out a happy man. I got a factory reconditioned (which saved me about 25%) Dyson dc17-which I was assured is as good as new. The owner of the shop gave me great information about other vacuums and said his shop would take care of the vacuum if I had any problems with it, even beyond the Dyson warranty. He even threw in an extra $20 filter for free!

If you're in the market for a Dyson specifically, or a vacuum in general, stop at the Corner Vacuum Shop before going to Walmart, Target, Sears, etc. You won't be disappointed in the good ole fashioned service/price (the chains don't carry factory reconditioned models).

FYI - I am in no way affiliated with this store-I just wanted to pay them a well deserved compliment!
