In light of Small Business Saturday, Newport Patch asked our Facebook readers what small business in town could they not live without and why.
We can't really say we were surprised with all the replies we received, with Dexter being such a great place to shop local.
Here's a look at what your neighbors said. If you don't see your favorite, feel free to leave us a comment.
