Small business Saturday has arrived

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Move over malls and mega-stores.  It is time to celebrate the small retailers in our community who many would say are the backbone of the economy.

Small Business Saturday falls on November 30th this year.

Independent retailers will have special offers trying to lure customers in to see what they have to offer.

Lynn Douthett, the North Carolina District director of the US Small Business Administration, visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about the importance of shopping "small".
