A new retail shopping event has arrived, encouraging consumers to support local, independent businesses during the holiday season.
Small Business Saturday, wedged between Black Friday and Cyber Monday , is the latest sales campaign aimed at holiday shoppers.
But unlike its larger retail counterparts, which tend to shine a spotlight on big box stores, Small Business Saturday suggests consumers support their neighbourhood mom-and-pop shops.
The day comes during the critical holiday shopping season as many small businesses struggle to survive the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
