Program Purpose

Oakland County’s Small Business Saturday Program is focused on helping small businesses increase foot traffic and sales as the holiday shopping season begins.

We want to partner with you to support the small businesses in your community. If you already have a Small Business Program, let’s coordinate our resources. If you don’t have a program, use the Oakland County program to the maximum.​

Let’s work together to help our small businesses increase sales this holiday season and make sure shoppers know how to win BIG!

Will You Be the Winningest Community This Year?!

Can any community beat Lake Orion in the number of Small Business Saturday shoppers this year?  Molly Lalone doesn’t think so!

Competition among the Main Street Oakland County communities can be both friendly…and fierce. Each community strives to increase shopper foot traffic and sales for their small businesses as the holiday shopping season begins.

Partner with us even you already have a Small Business Program.  We can coordinate our resources. If you don’t have a program, use the Oakland County program to the maximum.
