Cyber Monday benefits not only big, but small businesses

Proper in downtown Fargo is just one of many small businesses to offer discounts for the occasion.

FARGO — Cyber Monday isn't just for big businesses. One of the smaller ones that participated is Proper in downtown Fargo.

The women's apparel shop has been operating downtown for the past 11 years, and on Monday, Nov. 29, they offered 20% off everything in their store and online.

Their owner said it's great to be able to give something back to the community, in return for their support over the difficult past year-and-a-half.

And this weekend, she saw it continue.

"It means a lot to see people come out and support the small businesses and do their holiday shopping at small businesses in Fargo. Fargo's so great about supporting all of us," said Teresa O'Day, owner of Proper.


The Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo Chamber says that 98.9% of businesses in North Dakota are small businesses.
