This weekend was both Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, and for many local stores it was a hope that holiday shopping could keep local stores alive into 2021.
If you didn’t shop local, it’s not too late to show some support for small businesses in Alexandria: Visit Alexandria is currently sponsoring a Shop Small Week scheduled to run through Sunday, Dec. 6.
For those Alexandrians looking to get holiday shopping done, or just looking to take advantage of sales, did you shop online or in person? Did you buy from local stores or go to some of the larger retailers and Amazon?
Tell us in the poll below and sound off in the comments if you were particularly happy with any local purchase this weekend.
