Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Cordele announced today that, as a member of the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program, they will be promoting Small Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov 27th and all holiday season long. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010, to encourage people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Cordele are excited to collaborate to support such a powerful movement.

The Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Cordele are encouraging the community to Shop Small® this Nov 27th. The two have collaborated to spotlight the local small businesses in Cordele and Crisp County. Monica Simmons, President of the Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce stated, “We at the Chamber encourage you to shop local this holiday season. When you shop small, you are supporting our local economy in many ways. By shopping small and supporting local, our local businesses are able to help the community in return by creating jobs, supporting local causes, and that money turns over in our community many times.  Together, we can make an impact in our community.” The Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce is located at 502 South 2nd Avenue.

“Now is more important than ever to shop small,” says Monica Rentfrow, Executive Director of Downtown Cordele. “When you shop in our local town of Cordele, you are supporting local families that give back in return to our community. We need to support them as they’ve supported us.” The Downtown Cordele office is located on 9th Avenue East adjacent to Historic SAM Shortline Train Depot.
