Shoppers encouraged to 'shop small' on Saturday

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Those who missed out on Black Friday deals at major retails don't need to worry about finding the perfect holiday gift.

On Nov. 26, shoppers are encouraged to support local shops during Small Business Saturday.

Launched by American Express in 2010 as a way to boost spending at locally owned shops, the campaign has seen its share of growth. About 95 million shoppers took advantage of Small Business Saturday in 2015.
