The "Holiday Shopping Craze" is quickly approaching, and there are many specialty days to choose from. The ever-so-popular Black Friday brings deals and savings at the malls, and Cyber Monday treats the growing online shopping trend.
But now, there's a new player in the shopping world, Small Business Saturday, focused on giving the growing entrepreneurs a voice in the game.
The Saturday following Thanksgiving don't wake up at 4 a.m. or stare at your computer, take a pleasant stroll to your local business to find unique gifts for this holiday season.
The second annual Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to asking people to "Shop Small" to help fuel the economy.
