Small Business Saturday (or "Shop Small Saturday") is November 28, 2015, the Saturday following Thanksgiving, the day that has been dedicated to supporting the small businesses in your neighborhood.
Created by American Express and first observed on November 27, 2010, Small Business Saturday is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday-- the busiest shopping season of the year-- which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.
The day has always made a big splash in Brooklyn-- a borough replete with small businesses-- because it increases the visibility of the area's longtime and up-and-coming mom-and-pop shops and generates revenue for both the business and the community.
Here is a just a short list of some of the participating shops in Crown Heights:
