Big name national retailers take the spotlight on Black Friday as their deep price cuts pull in shoppers in droves, and then there's Cyber Monday.
But what about those brick-and-mortar mom-and-pop businesses all over Peabody and beyond that are the backbone of America’s economy? Just when do they get their day?
That's what Small Business Saturday is for this weekend. Consumers are encouraged to shop locally for holiday gifts and otherwise just support small businesses.
Some shops will be offering special deals on Saturday -- visit the Small Business Saturday website to find participating Peabody retailers -- but more on that later.
