Small Business Saturday

Isabelle Shepherd, WHQR

The day after Thanksgiving, shoppers come out in droves for Black Friday, a sales event for big box retail stores.  And that following Monday, e-commerce stores try to draw customers in with deals online.  Nestled between the two lies Small Business Saturday, and hundreds of local shops will participate. 

As the holiday shopping season kicks off today, retailers of every size are hoping to make up for five fewer business days this year.
