Small Business Saturday is a national shopping event (between Black Friday and Cyber Monday) that encourages consumers to shop local. This year on November 24th, millions of Americans across the country will set out to shop for holiday gifts at their favorite local businesses. New Orleans retailers celebrate this annual event on Bayou Road, Lower Magazine, Oak St. and O.C. Haley Blvd.
