Sauk Valley Shop Small is a year round effort to increase community awareness of the Shop Small movement in the Sauk Valley region. Shopping small local independent small businesses helps create thriving communities. When you shop at a local mom and pop 68% of your money stays local. If every household in the Sauk Valley spent only $10 a month at a small local independent merchant, $5.3 million dollars would recirculate annually within the local economy versus only $3.2 million if that money were spent at a big box*. Shopping small is big in the Sauk Valley.
