|Support Local BusinessesShop Small Saturday, November 28
Thanksgiving weekend marks one of the biggest shopping seasons of the year, and this is the time to support your local stores, restaurants, and service industries. Through these unprecedented times, our businesses have continued to provide goods and services with a positive attitude. Now is the time to give back to the many Tarpon Springs small business owners who have always been there for you. Now let’s be there for them.
And while you are out, celebrate our nation’s veterans by purchasing a “Those Who Served” craft beer. $1 of every purchase goes to a Tarpon Springs veteran’s charity. The beer release is a collaboration of Five Branches and Unrefined Breweries.
