Today is  Small Business Saturday, two days after Thanksgiving — a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Woonsocket. 

Jeanne Pepin Budnick, chairperson of  the  Blackstone Valley Independent Business Alliance, which is partnering with the  Northern RI Chamber of Commerce to promote Small Business Saturday, said the day is a national focus on their year-round effort to promote local business. 

"We ask our customers to, whatever they do, whenever they can, to shop independently owned businesses." Budnick said.

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
