Today's the big day to go shop small

On Black Friday, many Big Box and other large retail enterprises worked hard to entice us to buy their deals. My question: If they can offer the savings on one day, why not throughout the year?

Our area has more than 200 African-American-owned small businesses and at least 400 small businesses owned by women. On Small business Saturday, let's celebrate their being an integral part of our economic vitality and go shop small.
