Hayesville's
Shop Small/Shop Local Event
  2018
was another GREAT SUCCESS
for our small town businesses.
All shops saw an increase in sales and some had their best day EVER.

 Small Business Saturday is a good time to "Shop Local". One small purchase can make a big difference.

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