Visitor centers across Door County are determined to keep holiday shopping dollars local this year. Ahead of Small Business Saturday, the organizations have helped launch Shop Door County, a Facebook page where area businesses can show off their items, offer different services, and keep consumers updated on deals. Currently, there are 243 members contributing to the page. Carly Sarkis from Destination Sturgeon Bay says local businesses are doing their part to make sure they can serve their customers safely.
Sarkis says the success of its Unwrapping Sturgeon Bay event last week gave the community a spark it has not seen in a while. According to American Express, approximately 67 cents out of every dollar spent with local businesses stay in the area.
