News Release: City of Tallahassee

What: In recognition of the third anniversary of Mayor John Marks’ Local Business Saturday initiative, a group of Tallahassee celebrity shoppers will visit three independently owned and operated businesses to promote the value of shopping locally.

The Local Business Saturday initiative, launched in January of 2011, designates the second Saturday of every month as a day when Tallahassee shoppers are encouraged to shop, dine or purchase a service from at least one locally owned business. The program was initially designed solely for the 2011 calendar year; however, due to the positive feedback and support from Tallahassee business owners, residents and community leaders, the program continues to remain active.

The Local Business Saturday initiative received statewide honors at the 2012 Florida Public Relations Association Golden Image Awards and was featured in both Tallahassee and Quality Cities magazines.

When: Saturday, January 11
11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
