Small Business Saturday Deals

Nov 20, 2012 07:20PM ● By Anonymous

If you still want to get out and celebrate the beginning of the shopping season without the chance of losing a limb, Small Business Saturday happens November 24th and retailers around the area are all buzzing with fun features, discounts, and events. It’s a good opportunity to get out and walk around your community without the hassle of having to wait in long lines or fight over something called a “Furby” (seriously, what is that thing? It’s like a dust bunny mated with a tree sloth).

By shopping local, you’re helping support local businesses and making sure that some of the $520 billion plus that shoppers will spend this holiday season ends up benefitting your community. Stores are serving refreshments, providing entertainment, and handing out gift certificates with purchases all over town. You really can’t say that about the big box stores, now can you?
