Black Friday may be the most well-known, some may argue infamous, shopping day of the year but small business get their own day this weekend.

Many shops in Old Sacramento bank on tourists wandering in but there aren’t many during the holiday season. For Small Business Saturday, they rely on local dollars.

Local business owners say shopping in their stores is the best way to stimulate the local economy.

“The big department stores offer a good selection, but your home-grown businesses really go out there and farm the markets for special products for you and we really are able to offer them to you at a great price,” said Mark Snyder, of Christmas and Co.

Super Silver’s Cal Xiong agrees. She says browsing niche shops like hers is a good way to find the perfect gift.

Many small businesses in Old Sacramento will be having sales for the entire holiday season.
