WBTV Charlotte (November 2016) – This year, for the second year in a row, for Small Business Saturday, Jane and Tom McElhaney of Our Town America of Charlotte will head out to thank small business owners for everything they do for our community.
Small Business Saturday, the shopping holiday held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, encouraging shoppers to patronize small and local businesses.
Jane and Tom are small business owners themselves, as Our Town America franchisees, and understand that small businesses mean big business to the community.
The McElhaney's support small businesses year round, as the Our Town America business model is focused on helping local business owners create a sense of community at their stores by welcoming new movers to town with free one-time gifts.
