Chamber promotes 'Small Business Saturday'

LUBBOCK -

The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce is celebrating small businesses' impact with promotion this Saturday. The hope is it will expand small businesses' resources. 

Abel Castro, Chairman of the Lubbock Chamber, said expansion is crucial. 

"At the chamber we have 1,700 members and 80% of them have 10 employees or less," he said. "It's incredibly important that we support these small businesses." 

Sarah Womble owns Loolah's Boutique. It just opened off 122nd. She said it's going to great lengths to compete with big corporations this shopping season. 

"I try to keep the prices fair and reasonable and find things that not everybody has," Womble said. 

Chamber leaders say supporting these businesses makes the city stronger. 

"They pay taxes here in Lubbock, they employ our citizens here in Lubbock and we engage with them on a daily basis. So it is very important that we support them," Castro said.

Along with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, the city will also observe 'Giving Tuesday' next week. That's when it hopes shoppers will donate to charitable organizations in our area.
