RelyLocal Shuttle helps Small Business Saturday be good to Downtown business owners

Many store owners attributed the uptick in part to a holiday shuttle charted by Nick Christensen, owner of Rely Local Racine County (a business promotion website) and co-sponsored by 21 local business owners.
“The small businesses are in battle with the big boxes of the world, so to speak,” Christensen said. “If we can spend more money with local businesses, more will stay in our local economy.”
That’s where the idea for the bus, which transports holiday shoppers to West Racine and Downtown, began. At first, the plan was just to have a Small Business Saturday shuttle, but Christensen said it blossomed into a five weekend service, which will continue running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday until Christmas......Small Business Saturday good to Downtown business owners
