Our View: Shop Local Saturday, Throughout Year


November 27, 2019

This week families and friends will come together across the nation to celebrate Thanksgiving. Following the yearly holiday, many will start their Christmas shopping at bigger locations on Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. While there will always be shopping done at the bigger stores and large web sites, it is also vitally important to remember small businesses during the holiday season.

This Saturday is "Small Business Saturday" and is a wonderful opportunity to get away from the box stores and support local business. While it is always tremendously important to shop local as much as possible throughout, the end of November and December are huge for local businesses. For some, this is a make or break time of year, and it really does matter when people take the time and effort to spend their money in Three Forks.


One of the great things about shopping is local is that you can find something unique and often times handmade. You can also find gift items that are made in the great state of Montana, not something you are always going to find at other stores. There are so many out of the box ideas that can be found by shopping local and there is always something to choose from, even for the pickiest person. It can also be something like stopping by a restaurant and grabbing a gift card for a person who would much rather eat then have a different gift.

There are always going to be huge sales late on Thanksgiving, the following day, and the Monday after, and there are some great deals. But it is also important to remember the small businesses that make small-town America thrive.

Hopefully, a lot of local residents can make sometimes not only Saturday but throughout the year to see all the wonderful businesses Three Forks has to offer.
