Small Business Saturday Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is, Missoula!

Small businesses are the backbone of the Missoula-area economy. This holiday season, all Missoulians are encouraged to support our local economy and small businesses by shopping and dining in Downtown Missoula during Small Business Season. Downtown businesses are extending hours of operation, offering special promotions, and providing personal touches and connections along the way.

Spending at locally-owned small businesses keeps dollars circulating in our own community and economy. During times of crisis – such as the COVID pandemic – supporting small businesses in Missoula means those businesses can keep their doors

open, their people employed and their families fed.



Downtown Missoula Shop & Dine Local Headquarters

Location: Paddleheads Post (140 N. Higgins Ave.)

Coupon for FREE Hot Cocoa, Shop Small Goodies, & a list of Downtown Small Business Saturday Promotions from your favorite retailers and restaurants.

Each year, small businesses band together to promote the importance of shedding the big box stores and supporting locally owned, small businesses the day following Black Friday. Known as Small Business Saturday (SBS), this shopping holiday has created a large following all across the country. Since 2016, it is estimated that shoppers supported small businesses by spending over $15.4 BILLION during SBS. It is a trend that is spreading across the country….come out and support your community by Shopping & Dining Small during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business and Small Business Saturday Statistics:
  • Small businesses have created over 8 million jobs since 1990.
