Known in Springfield, IL, for its reclaimed church and barn wood furniture, Sangamon Reclaimed will be participating once again in Small Business Saturday.
The initiative was launched in 2010 in an effort to help small, local businesses by creating a national event encouraging people to purchase from locally owned stores.
In 2011, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution in support of Small Business Saturday and by 2012, local politicians, state governors, and even the President were backing the event.
Every year since its inception, Small Business Saturday has gained momentum with last year being the largest yet and this year promising even more. Small Business Saturday is now recognized as a shopping holiday and still viewed as one of the best ways to support local businesses and economies by purchasing from small, locally owned shops.
Sangamon Reclaimed owner, Brian Frieze, said the business was excited to again participate. “Small Business Saturday will provide customers with an opportunity to not only support a local business, but to also view our new showroom.” Along with this, customers will have an opportunity to place orders in time for Christmas.
Make sure you stop by Sangamon Reclaimed, located at 2710 S. 13th St, Springfield, Illinois 62703, on November 26, between 9.00am and 3.00pm.
