Small Business, Big Impact: Don’t Miss Small Business Saturday in SoSo

small-biz-sat-nov-28-2

Forget Black Friday with its 5AM wake-up call and the possibility of trampling and fist fights to secure gifts. Enlightened shoppers know Small Business Saturday is the way to roll during this Holiday Season. Last year, 88 million consumers opted to shop small on the holiday gem that falls between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

American Express created Small Business Saturday six years ago to celebrate and support small businesses- which have an incredible impact on local communities. The one-day event has since become anything but small. With local retailers, restaurants, spas and more all taking part, consumers are poised to grab some great gifts and effect some great local benefits.

Want to do a little SoSo shopping this Small Business Saturday and support our community? Stop by SoSo’s local businesses including…

What Will Happen To The West Palm Beach Golf Course and 8111 South Dixie Property? Find Out The Options This Thursday.

Under_Construction_Golf

For months we’ve been talking about the future of the West Palm Beach Golf Course and the 8111 South Dixie (the former IHOP location).

This Thursday, the City’s economic development team together with several outside experts hired to workshop the future of the property will show off some ideas for the future of both the course as well as the city-owned property at 8111 South Dixie Highway.

Four economically realistic possibilities will be presented. The experts working on the project have put together the options based on market conditions and what developers would be be willing to build given the economic realities of the properties. The information will be a recap of a presentation recently given to the City Commission. (Rumor has it that one of the scenarios features a waterside marina with shops and restaurants.)

Attend the meeting to find out all the details…
