Small Business Saturday gets shoppers into local stores
We love to blog about local businesses, but there's no doubt they get drowned out during the corporate frenzy that is Black Friday. Fortunately, there's now a day for independent retailers, too. American Express started Small Business Saturday, encouraging everyone to get into their hometown shops and boutiques.
If you register your American Express card on Facebook and patronize a participating retailer, you get $25 on your statement. Check out local stores including Apropos, Keys Country, Indigo Blue Boutique and Deborah Kent's. That's only a few, so make sure to call your favorite boutique and ask what they have going on. Some places are offering extra deals on top of the American Express incentive.
Here'e one: The Salon and Spa At Mystic Hair, 13801 N. Dale Mabry Highway, and the Edge Salon, 14447 N. Dale Mabry Highway, are offering a gift card special Saturday only. For every $100 you buy in gift cards, you'll get a $10 voucher for yourself.
Let us know if you hear of any other Small Business Saturday deals, here or on our Facebook.
