Shop Small Stratford Returns for the 2022 Holiday Season


Saturday, November 26th

The Town of Stratford is once again inviting residents to support small businesses as the Shop Small Stratford campaign kicks-off the holiday shopping season. Mayor Laura R. Hoydick has issued a proclamation declaring Saturday, November 26th – the Saturday after Thanksgiving – “Shop Small Stratford Day” in conjunction with the national program, Small Business Saturday.

Mellow Monkey, a Stratford based, award winning boutique is spearheading the campaign with support from The Stratford Department of Economic and Community Development and The Milford Bank.

According to the proclamation, “small businesses have significant impacts when they are supported and that includes boosting the economy, creating a variety of jobs, contributing to the local community, and enhancing cultural vitality.” Further, “shopping small means directly supporting another member of the community and that is what strengthens our Town, both socially and financially.”

The annual, one-day event capitalizes on Small Business Saturday which is nationally sponsored by American Express. According to the Small Business Administration, of the new jobs created between 1995 and 2020, small businesses accounted for 62% – 12.7 million compared to 7.9 million by large enterprises.
