Downtown Wayne was abuzz Saturday, November 30, as businesses throughout the district welcomed customers looking for holiday gifts and great deals. Sam Rainey, Wayne Main Street Interim Executive Director, comments “Small Business Saturday in downtown Wayne is more than just shopping for your holiday gifts; it’s about bringing that small community feeling to the surface. The business owners in Wayne know their customers; everyone is a familiar face. Small Business Saturday is a national movement to raise awareness about the importance of supporting local businesses.”
To promote Wayne’s Small Business Saturday efforts, Wayne Main Street held its Annual Small Business Saturday kick-off event at Karma Coffee & Kitchen (35634 W. Michigan Avenue, Wayne, MI 48184). More than 100 shoppers attended the event which included free coffee and “Shop Small Business” tote bags, as well as a random gift card in every bag.
