Small business has long been the backbone of our country, as well as, crucial to our local communities. Small Business Saturday, celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving is a day specifically dedicated to supporting small business.  It has grown into a movement that millions of individuals, businesses, and communities have embraced nationwide.

Small Business Saturday is a national effort to help independently owned merchants gain more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year.   This year’s big event falls on Saturday, November 30.

At the Cleveland Bradley Innovation Center, patrons can have the opportunity of visiting three different businesses for their shopping pleasure.  Serendipity CB and Kim Currin Creations will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and G-Daddy’s BBQ will be hosting an open house from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.   The Cleveland Bradley Innovation Center is located at 3575 Adkisson Drive (on the campus of Cleveland State Community College) in Cleveland, TN.

Cheryl Barker, owner of Serendipity CB is a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician.  She carries her own line of all natural skin care and holistic products made in her studio.  Her gift certificates are sure to please anyone on your Christmas list.

Kim Currin, owner of Kim Currin Creations, specializes in functional glass art.  Stop by her studio to see the many unique gifts she has available for those “hard-to-buy-for” individuals on your shopping list.

For mouthwatering BBQ and fixings, you can’t go wrong with G-Daddy’s BBQ.  Come in for a free BBQ Pulled Pork Slider and some of our famous sweet tea while supplies last. We will also have door prizes! Gift certificates will be available for purchase for your family and friends. Save 10% on your purchases for one day only, Saturday, November 30th.
