Shop Small, a program pushed by American Express, is being actively promoted by the Van Buren Chamber of Commerce.

“We, as consumers, spend our money in a variety of places and we are glad we have those choices.  However, before you spend all of your money on Black Friday or even on Cyber Monday, consider shopping LOCALLY and shopping small on Small Business Saturday,” noted a statement from the chamber.

In Van Buren, several small retailers with unique products and service are participating. Click here to read the full story from our partners at
