Mountain Valley Country Store staff, Jennifer Webb and Rodney Tomlinson, were ready for


on Saturday November 30th

sponsored by Historic Hayesville Inc.


Small Business Saturday 2017 was the first year that Historic Hayesville Inc sponsored the event and encouraged our small businesses to participate. It was so successful that 2018 saw twice as many businesses participating and HHI added a concert in the Beal Center featuring Jordan Miller who wrote the song “Hayesville”. 2019 had even more participating locations and HHI had another Songwriter’s Circle concert scheduled for Saturday evening.

Shoppers used the Interactive Map link below to find participant locations and information.


Capitalizing on the opportunity that our successful Small Business Saturday presents, the Beal Center hosted a Black Friday event, the Clay County Chamber of Commerce hosted vendors that have no store fronts, and the Clay County Lions Club sold Christmas wreaths, all downtown on Small Business Saturday.

Shoppers began by visiting the Centennial Exhibit on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to collect a canvas shopping bag (while supplies lasted) with a participant map, the holiday event schedule, special offerings from participating businesses and other goodies.



Baskets250X188Various participant businesses had tickets that shoppers could collect for a chance at winning one of the four gift baskets, each valued at over $200. The prize drawing was at the Christmas Parade. The more you shopped the more chances you had to win.



Explore Hayesville and shop local year round.

 Small businesses are more than just local places! They are OUR places and their success is OUR community's success.
