“Shop Small Maui” campaign: Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Small Business Saturday — a day that will be highlighted this year on Nov. 30 by the “Shop Small Maui” campaign. Maui’s Office of Economic Development, in partnership with the Maui Chamber of Commerce, is sponsoring the campaign, which is intended to encourage residents and visitors to support shopping locally this holiday season. There are more than 250 merchants participating in “Shop Small Maui,” many displaying a “Shop Small Maui” poster outside or inside their businesses. “Shop Small Maui” welcomes small businesses owned and registered in Maui County to join the campaign throughout the year by signing up online at www.shopsmallmaui.com. For more information, contact OED Business Development Specialist Tokie Ogawa at 270-7415.
