Chicago goes big for Small Business Saturday

For Kerry Punzi, the best day of the year is the Saturday after Thanksgiving - when small businesses like hers get the attention they deserve.

Holiday shopping is in full swing, and on Small Business Saturday, some Louisville shoppers are skipping the big box stores and going local, instead.

While major chains take in huge revenue on Black Friday, Kimerling says he hopes to do about 20 percent more business than usual on Small Business Saturday. "We see our sales go way up".

"There's a great vibe on Magazine Street and we're excited for everyone to kick off the holiday season", art dealer, Tony Mose, said.

"And every Small Business Saturday, what I end up doing is I offer a buy one get one free offer".

But Morken isn't just supporting her own store, within Unglued over 300 local artists and small businesses have their products for sale.

Everyone knows about Black Friday, but what about Small Business Saturday? For John Nelson, that means serving a whole lot of food.

"I think the local community is very supportive of the small businesses", Vanderheof says.

Shopping is easier for Katie Toone when she's in Downtown Athens.

Pointing down the street, Bronken said many new restaurants, boutiques, and pubs had recently opened, bringing life and new energy to the area.

"We can definitely feel the community's support", Colomb said. "Way back before Walmart, we all supported our communities and were self-sustaining".

Jacquee Gustafson, 53, who has co-owned the Sayville General Store on Main Street for 21 years, expected to ring up more than 1,000 customers Saturday.

The U.S. Small Business Administration said that 46 percent of workers in IL are employed by small businesses.

"Our lovely lights are on, and we're putting up our wreaths, and it's actually going to be really great weather, really sunny." said Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District Executive Director Elizabeth Wurfbain, "The stores are ready they're in the mode of Christmas and the holidays and it's a great first shopping day really after thanksgiving so people are ready and excited".
