TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

For local retailers, this Saturday is known as Small Business Saturday, where shoppers are encouraged and incenticized to shop local merchants, as well as the big box stores.  

The program began a couple of years ago and has gained steam in markets all over the country. Shopping on this holiday weekend is part of the American culture.

If you can, remember to give a local merchant an opportunity to earn your business. You can be sure that every dollar you spend will be reinvested in the community and will be deeply, deeply appreciated.
