The holiday season is officially upon us and many residents are gearing up for some of the busiest shopping days of the year. In recent years, more shoppers have been taking advantage of Small Business Saturday. For this weekend’s Small Business Saturday, various local merchants in Centralia will be participating. Centralia Chamber of Commerce Director Ginny Zoellers says you can’t beat the service of a small local business.

Many of the local merchants in Centralia will have specials throughout the day on Small Business Saturday to entice shoppers. Zoellers says they primarily draw Centralia area residents for Small Business Saturday.
