Today in this country we tend to shop at big name stores that offer us deals too good to pass up. But let's not forget those stores owned by our friends and neighbors. It is a struggle for a small business to survive in this day and age but there is hope. Several years ago American Express started a campaign called Small Business Saturday. It is the Saturday after Black Friday and it is to remind us to not forget those businesses owned by people in your community.
By just purchasing one item at a local business we could help them from having to close their doors. So while you're out there stop in at one of these stores and buy something. You never know, you may be helping a neighbor to keep their business going.
