LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Several local businesses across Los Angeles are expected to participate in Small Business Saturday celebrations throughout the day.
Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell announced he will visit nine local and independently owned small businesses throughout the 13th district.
Atwater Village, Kaldi Coffee, Proof Bakery, Amoeba Records and The Cheese Store are just a few businesses O’Farrell plans to stop at during his tour from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
O’Farrell explained studies show that when consumers shop locally, money is re-circulated, which creates more tax revenue for the community and state.
These businesses also contribute to the character of our community by offering a more diverse selection of goods and services, O’Farrell added.
Discounts and deals will be offered in the Melrose Business Improvement District from noon to 8:00 p.m., located in shops across the area of Fairfax Avenue to Highland Avenue.
Up-and-coming musicians will play along the decorated streets during the district’s fifth annual celebration.
Small Business Saturday has become a national event to raise awareness, support and celebrate small businesses, along with their contributions, to our communities.
