Small Business Saturday a success for owners

Janel Eichenberg, who opened Chestnut Street Memories Consignment LLC, a few months ago in Reed City, like many locally-owned businesses, presented customers with special sales on Small Business Saturday. She offered 20 percent off store items and 25% off Christmas items. "Black Friday is when people usually go into big towns for shopping, and Saturday is a time to shop locally to help individual businesses. This year I did well even on Black Friday. I had return customers and new customers," Eichenberg said.
