Small Business Saturday on November 29, 2014: This is

special offers and refreshments!
Remember Downtown Appleton is the place to shop for all your
gift-giving needs throughout the holiday season and the year! Every
dollar you spend at a locally owned small business returns
approximately 68 cents to the community versus a dollar spent at a
national chain which only results in 43 cents remaining here.
