Local Businesses Come Together for Small Business Saturday

Many locals were out shopping again today, but this time for a different reason.
 
"We're about serving our community and we want the people to know that we're here for them because they're here for us," said Christie Tinney, owner of Best Bagels in Town in Binghamton.
 
Today business across the country celebrated Small Business Saturday, and local businesses were excited to see some of their favorite customers.
 
"We know people by their first names," said Mary Kolvek, a sales associate at Goat Boy in Owego.

"We care that they come in. We appreciate that they come in and we try to show them that everyday," said Lisa Curatolo, owner of Goat Boy.

Supporting local businesses is important to keep money in the community.
 
"All the money stays locally. We all live locally," said Deborah Buchinsky, manager at Southern Tier Harley Davidson.

"the community does need the money. It's a small community. It's a great community. It's so family oriented," said Kolvek.

While many big boxed businesses are more focused on competition, many local businesses say they are more about comradery and working with each other in the community.

"We're all supporting each other. If I'm successful, then my neighbors are going to be successful," said Tinney.

Local store owners say they may cost a little bit more than big chains, but that customers will always be satisfied with the quality and assortment of products.
