  • Local businesses in Tulsa are gearing up for Small Business Saturday

Originally launched in 2010 by credit card giant American Express to encourage consumers to support its small-scale merchants, Small Business Saturday has grown into a retail event that encompasses all small shops and restaurants.

Parker and Banks are hoping the community steps up and helps fuel the local economy by supporting the small businesses. "It's been really great here", she said. Unglued regularly holds events for the 4 Love of Dog Rescue and other non-profits, and many other small businesses hold events similar as well.

Small Business Saturday thrived around the country, even here, in Arroyo Grande.

"It's the best day of the year". But this Saturday was a chance to fight back and reclaim and retain customers.

"Eight dollars", she said. She collected more clothes and accessories to put out, just for the holiday rush. "It's our busiest day of the year and it really helps us survive and be sustainable the rest of the year", Morken said.


At Cow Over The Moon toys and sports collectibles in Huntington, Suz Mercer, 39, was looking for Christmas presents. "We're trying to help each other out and we all shop at each other's boutiques too", she said. Shoppers said keeping those businesses alive is worth sometimes paying a few extra bucks.

Across the street at Little Switzerland Dolls, Ashley Santucci, 27, was picking up gifts for her flower girl ahead of her wedding in August.

" It's very important that we support the community they are the people who live here they keep the money and the taxes coming in to Columbus and I think it's important that we spend that money here,"said Columbus Resident Pam Brock. And it just lets people know to buy local", Solorio said". "You might not know that someone makes wreaths out of their house".

The small business development center has a giveaway going on to promote shopping local. The shop was stocked to the ceiling with ornaments, greeting cards, candles and potential holiday gifts.
