Locals support Small Business Saturday

DETROIT – From the city to the suburbs, Small Business Saturday is vital to so many trying to make it.

The owner of Good Cakes & Bakes on Livernois Avenue is using her business to showcase other small businesses.

Bryant Owens and Kummbareh Owens were there selling Everbutter Natural Hair Care.

Jetta Barbee was also there with her husband selling gourmet popcorn.

"This is an excellent way for us to get out there and get our product known," Barbee said. "Introduce it to the world."

It's hard work, but Small Business Saturday means giving people a taste to let customers know that they're here.

In Detroit, attention is paid to businesses in downtown and midtown, but it's the neighborhood businesses that need the focus.

Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence was out helping local businesswomen get access to the resources they may need.
