Celebrating Over 30 of Our Retailers on Small Business Saturday

Did you know: West Acres is a small business and so are 30+ of our stores and kiosks that currently call West Acres home. Here are the small businesses we spotlight today (& the ways some of them are celebrating with special savings!)…

Although our nearly one million square foot space makes us seem anything but small, West Acres is a locally owned and operated small business! In honor of Small Business Saturday, we are putting the spotlight on over 30 of our stores and kiosks that are also small businesses.

Small Business Saturday became an officially recognized day in 2011, with a mission to encourage people to support locally owned, small businesses in their community. With so many small businesses that call West Acres home, we feel pride in the fact that when our customers shop at these stores, they are supporting local small businesses.

Scroll on to see the long list of small businesses and some of the faces behind them. Psst… Some of them are even encouraging our visitors to #ShopSmall by celebrating the day with special savings!

I have the privilege of being on the amazing Marketing, PR and Fashion team as the Digital Marketing Manager at West Acres. When I am not managing our social and digital platforms and brainstorming content ideas, I am the woman behind (and sometimes in front of) the camera – creating content and working with the media to create segments to introduce the latest trends! When I’m not at the mall, you can find me watching “Friends,” eating ice cream by the carton, spending time with my family and friends, feeding my Pinterest addiction or crossing off destinations on my traveling bucket list.
