Enjoy a day of special deals and promotions not to be missed. Grab a bite to eat, get started on some early holiday shopping, and join the community as we show our support for local small businesses that have been through so much this year.”

Businesses offering special deals and discounts include:

The event starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 28, which is Small Business Saturday. According to WikipediaSmall Business Saturday was first observed in the United States on November 27, 2010. Small Business Saturday was created as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick-and-mortar businesses that are small and local.
