This weekend is nationwide Small Business Saturday, and what better place to celebrate than Davidson, where shops and restaurants have grown in number and variety over the past 20 years? Beginning Saturday, the Town of Davidson and DavidsonNews.net will be promoting the idea that you should “Turn Around, Shop in Town,” at locally owned small businesses, from South Main Square to Main Street to the Exit 30 area.

Flatiron Kitchen, Summit Coffee and many others have come more recently. South Main Square has blossomed, with restaurants, a specialty beer store and even a violin shop.
