Shopping has changed this year. With ongoing events posing an unprecedented risk to our nation's small businesses, it's up to their communities to support them through these times. 44 percent of Boston's small businesses have shuttered during the pandemic.
This year, we've pledged to go beyond "Small Business Saturday", and encourage all Bostonians to continue to shop local. Let's take a look at a few of the small businesses you can support this year.
