The Chester Chamber of Commerce and River City Renewal are encouraging Chester residents to shop and dine locally this holiday season.

The annual Shop Small Saturday Nov. 27 will officially kick off the 2021 holiday shopping season.

According to Linda Sympson, Executive Director of the Chester Chamber of Commerce, local businesses have been encouraged to offer special sales and promotions on that day.

Many local businesses are expected to have extended hours, specials, drawings and other promotions.

Shoppers are encouraged to check websites of local businesses and Facebook for more details.

"We hope Chester residents will consider shopping and dining locally on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and throughout the entire holiday shopping season this year," said Bob Welker, Chamber of Commerce President.
