As big businesses prepare to open their doors for Black Friday, local stores are getting ready for Small Business Saturday. Started by American Express in 2010, the promotion is aimed at rallying people to shop at independent and local businesses across the country. This year, American Express is offering special deals to cardholders who shop at qualifying small business locations, while many of the stores will be offering a number of discounts and giveaways to those who decide to shop small on Saturday, November 30th. BTR Pulse's Lauren Hawker spoke with a few shop owners who will be taking part in this year's Small Business Saturday.
