Shop Small Saturday looms

Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 - Following a brisk day of shopping today on what is commonly referred to as "Black Friday," local shoppers will have the chance to support locally owned small businesses tomorrow on Shop Small Saturday.

The promotion was originally sparked by American Express, but has since grown into a nationwide movement to support small, locally operated businesses where shoppers can mingle and assist with their friends, neightbors, and even family members.

Shops all over Mariposa County will be open to kick-off the holiday shopping season without the hype of "Black Friday" that envelopes the efforts of major chain stores.

Local residents are urged to shop locally and support the small businesses in Mariposa County, thereby, supporting the entire community.
