This is an open letter from every tiny mercantile everywhere to American Express, and all of the citizens of Racine — much appreciation for your support of Small Business Saturday 2017. American Express initiated this event several years ago nationally, and Racinians implemented the experience on Saturday, Nov. 25 to the 'nth degree.'
Speaking for ourselves, we haven't seen such genuine enthusiasm and respect for our presence in Downtown Racine in a long, long time. After spending 40-plus years on Main Street, all we can say is "Racine ... we love you!" A heartfelt thank you to all!
