Calvert Dept. of Economic Development encourages residents to Stop, Shop and Rollup savings on Small Business Saturday

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Nov. 15, 2019 – The Calvert County Department of Economic Development encourages citizens to participate in Small Business Saturday on Nov. 30, 2019, by doing their holiday shopping at Calvert County businesses. The holidays are here, and many small and local businesses will offer seasonal deals to celebrate.

Citizens can visit for a list of businesses offering specials, discounts, and giveaways during the event. Calvert County is home to a variety of unique businesses with eclectic offerings, delicious delicacies, vintage mementos and so much more. Take the opportunity to find the perfect holiday present or treat yourself while supporting businesses and jobs within your own community.

Small Business Saturday falls between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. While the small business holiday was created by American Express, it is now recognized by communities nationwide.

Shopping locally increases the tax base of Calvert County, ultimately creating a thriving community and a better quality of life for citizens. For more information, contact or 410-535-4583.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
