The cost of shipping has tripled from 16 cents per product in January to 55 cents in August, says The Washington Post. Yikes, that’s quite a leap. Bats are flying out of my pocketbook just thinking about it.

Plus, global supply chains are experiencing the aftershocks of the pandemic, which has caused 77 percent of the world’s ports to have abnormally long turnaround times, according to Bloomberg. With these unexpected shipping delays looming over the holiday season, Small Business Saturday on November 27 comes to the rescue. 

Instead of wearing out that golden “Place Your Order” button on Amazon, consider catching all the local seasonal deals rolling out from small businesses within the Las Vegas community.
