If you’re already planning to support great local businesses this holiday season, you’re not alone. A Yelp-commissioned survey conducted online by The Harris Poll among over 2,000 U.S. adults found that over 150 million Americans are likely to shop at local independent businesses for gifts this holiday season*, and together, all of these local holiday shoppers plan to spend more than $63 billion at local independent businesses.** That’s a whole lot of love for local businesses across the country!
