The Saturday after Thanksgiving has been dubbed Small Business Saturday, which celebrates locally-owned, independent businesses across the country and in Takoma Park.
One of the key reasons to shop locally is to maintain economic vitality. Takoma Park’s businesses reflect the community’s character and global culture, including a small stretch of Holton Lane and the New Ave area along New Hampshire Avenue. Stores offer diverse services and goods, such as Sarah’s Fabrics on University Boulevard, Park Florist, Now and Then and S&A Beads, as well as dance, yoga and movement classes and bike shops that encourage fitness.
