Local Laclede County businesses are gearing up for Small Business Saturday this weekend.
First observed in the United States the Saturday after Thanksgiving on Nov. 27, 2010, it is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, events designed for bog box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. In contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.
Jessica Massey, City of Lebanon Promotion Event Coordinator, said this is the 10th annual Small Business Saturday.
