Seventeen local businesses took part in the Fourth Annual McNairy County Chamber of Commerce Small Business Saturday.

“It was a way for the McNairy County Chamber of Commerce to host a passport shopping event for the county,” McNairy County Tourism Director Jessica Huff. “Shoppers were able to go to local businesses and get their passports stamped for a drawing.”

Deanna Bradley, owner of Dannuhcakes, opened for the event.

“We try to stay involved with the Chamber when they have events,” Bradley said. “The holiday season is here and we wanted to be a sweet break for people out shopping.”

Allie Evans of Downtown Allie of Adamsville opened from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We've had the best week we've ever had,” she said. “I think a lot of people are trying to support local businesses more because of COVID.”

American Express created Small Business Saturday in 2010.

“This season, it's more important than ever to support the local businesses we love,” the company stated on its website.
